First Jayco Travel Trailer

Just want to introduce myself and family to the forum. Recently purchased a 2016 Jay Flight 28BHBE. My family consists of Mike (myself), wife Stacy, 14 year old Emily and 12 year old Michael. Also have a terrifying Havanese named Hope who patrols our campsites when we're using our camper. First camper in 2004, but am now happy and proud to be a Jayco owner! We live in S.E Michigan and camp mostly in the lower peninsula. hoping to pick up some good info from the forum, liking what I've seen and read so far.

that solar setup is looking sweet..just bought a 2016 284bhsw...
looking into your setup..i assume you did the work yourself...what kind of cost did you see for materials? would you go with a larger solar panel to get to 300 or 400
