Solar battery charger

Looking for input on solar battery charger. Will be dry camping and wondering about keeping batteries charged without starting a generator. Thanks

There are a ton of posts discussing solar setups. use the search function.

Need to know to get help

How many days are you out?
Do you use a converter to make 120 volt ac and what do you use it for.
What type RV do you have.
Do you have a budget.
What part of the country and time of year. Do you park under trees in shade?
Are you handy, willing to watch youtubes and do it yourself?

Thanks RogerR. Have a Jayco 361REQS fifth. Just looking for a solar charger to help charge batteries. Not looking to boondocking. Simple system.

If you want to go solar GoPower and Renogy both make a suitcase type unit. Just set it in the sun with the cables attached to your batteries and they will charge them.
