Eagle Solar prewire by GoPower

I have a new 16 Eagle HT 29.5bhds. The unit is prewired by GoPower (gpelectric.com) on the roof and the front. These are the pics of my unit.
I would like to get a solar package but not sure how the wiring is done. Is it already hooked to battery? Is there prewire for the charge controller inside near the control panel?
GoPower has complete kits that look pretty good in this range.
I contacted the guys over at Rv Solar Connection. They install Kyocera panels and complete wiring, but no inverters etc. They said that the prewire is probably not sufficient.

Solar panels feed a controller first , which monitors and manages the output charge to the battery array.

The plugs on the roof feed down to the power room, but need a controller.

You can add multiple solar panels to the roof, typically in parrellel ( plug adaptors to expand )

The wattage of each pannel, added together when in parrellel, will define the size of the controller you need.

Lots of great stuff here on JOF about solar, including a social group about solar stuff.

I have some picture on my profile of my solar setup

Good luck
