2020 377 RLBH Solar Prep

so we are picking up our new 2020 377RLBH next week and I would like to order the solar kit. Has anyone upgraded their 377 to include solar? My question is , there are two battery banks in the unit are both wires separately Run to the location where the charge controller goes? The recommended kit from Jayco looks like it can control to battery banks I’m just not sure if they’re wired independently back to the controller does anyone know? I see that there are two circuit breakers one for each battery in the battery compartment. Our dealer is adding two additional batteries for a total of four. The charge controller on the solar kit recommended by Jayco can control 2 battery banks. Does anyone know if there are two sets of wires running to the prep location for the controller? Thanks for any help. I’m new to the group

My 2019 had wires (pos and neg) from the connector on the roof to the charge controller location (which were horribly installed and unsafe) and then two more (pos and neg) from the charge controller location to the battery bay. Then there is is a separate set of wires (pos and neg) from the quick connect port inside the wet bay to the battery bay.

The solar prep only has one set of + and - wires coming from the controller location to battery bus behind the battery disconnect and ground in the front of the camper. They do not come to the battery bank area. The batteries should be wired in parallel to make one 12 volt battery.

Unless the dealer has hooked up the batteries differently.

The positive wire is seperated in the wall behind the controller mounting depiction on wall of camper. My 321 RSTS had the wires in the cabinet behind the controller sticker.
