Solar ready 26bh

So I bought a charge controller and 100 W solar panel for my solar ready Jayco 26BH. The solar panel looks like it can plug directly into the camper but Iím not sure how to get the charge controller connected. Any ideas?

Solar ready seems to mean that Jayco ran wires from the roof to somewhere in the RV. I have read that Jayco puts a sticker where the wires are in the wall, or in a cabinet, or somewhere??? Not kidding. You may have to contact Jayco with your serial number and they may be able to help you if you get the right person.
Once you find that location, and if you like it, then it's a connection to the system. If they marked or colored the wires, IF!. Multimeter is your friend.
Remember, connect the controller to the battery first!, then connect the solar. Turn off solar before disconnecting the battery!
