    Josh, How did you hook-up your Renogy 100W, 12V, Monocrystalline Solar Panel ($140) to your Hawk 4WC? I want to use this Solar Panel as a portable unit on the “ground” to charge my one auxilliary 12V battery, Laptop and 2 portable fans. Is connecting to my 2004 Grandby 4WC simply a matter of using an extension cord from the Solar Panel to the Shore Power electrical male wall outlet on the exterior wall of the camper??? Or does the connection have to be manually wired into the electrical junction box inside the camper??? Does my camper already have a “Battery Charger – Charge Controller”??? If it needs to be wired into the panel – where can I have this work done if I live in Olympia, WA. Maybe, Stan of 4WC fame is reading this inquiry and can respond? Tnx from Wander the West member >Oly Bill

      Hi Bill. We connected our panels via the solar roof plug on our FWC. Do you have the rear wall solar plug on your camper and/or the roof plug? You will not be able to plug in a solar panel using the shore power electical plug as it is wired into a converter/charger for AC. If you are able to charge your camper via shore power then you do have a converter/charger but this is only for plugging into AC power. If you do not already have a solar setup installed then I do not believe you will have a charge controller installed. Basically a completed setup might look something like the following: Solar panel–>MC4 connector & cord–>some sort of plug to enter the camper–>fuse–>solar controller–>fuse–>Battery Monitor(optional)–>fuse–>House Battery. Our setup is as follows: 2x100W panels–>MC4 cables (in parallel)–>FWC roof plug–>fuse–>Bogart SC2030 Charge Controller–>fuse–>Bogart TM2030 Battery Monitor–>fuse–>House Batteries. I’m not too familiar with the Washington area but I’m sure Stan or someone on wanderthewest could make a recommendation for having the work completed. Best of luck with getting off the grid and back to wandering!
