Solar Panels

I was just wondering if anyone would have recommendations on how many watts I should get to provide enough power for my 2013 Ventana LE.

Runer... All of our systems seem to vary depending on our expectations and needs. I used VSHEETS design and mimicked his install except I went with 2 panels and added 2 more. I can run as a weekend boondocker.....everything except AC units per my needs. I have 4 each 6 volt batteries to feed from. I think I did a solar energy assessment and added up everything I wanted to run then made the install in stages to fend off the huge costs of jumping in wallet first. I am positive VSHEETS will jump in and share his diagram with you so I will stay out of his way and let him show his very sweet design.

Thanks Craig. Attached is the document describing my system planning and installation. There are several good threads on the forum regarding solar implementations, so suggest to use the search feature to find them.
