Portable Solar System?

OK fellow CC owners, I am maybe closing in on covered storage for my coach in our new location. However, it may not be possible to have electric to maintain the batteries.

I know nothing about solar systems but wondering if anyone makes a portable system that could be deployed outside the coach to keep the house batteries maintained.

There are suitcase panels available, that may work fine for your application. But they would need to be in the sun. You will also need a solar controller to keep the batteries from over charging.
