Aspire solar panel

I did not know there was a small panel on the roof of the aspire.

What is this connected to?

There was a previous thread on an Anthem. Apparently it's attached to the battery minder and tops off the battery when not plugged in.

Entegra Anthem 42RBQ new purchase questions

Newmar does the same thing on all coaches now. They call it a 5 amp. We have one on ours. I think they will charge the chassis battery when in storage, and you can't plug in to shore power.

That's a lot of roof up there without roof vents!!! You can add a bunch of panels.

Why no vents? Looks clean and simple. Is this a Entegra thing?

I have the same panel on my Travel Supreme. It is a 5 watt solar panel to the chassis batteries. It is designed to keep a charge to your starting batteries when parked for a long time outside. It's OK but not 100%. I wired an outlet to my battery bay and have been using one of these for years. Battery Float Charger, Automatic
I keep it connected all the time and never touch it. If I am plugged in, the chassis batteries always have a float charge. Not plugged in, the solar does help.

UPDATE, I just read that Entegra has a battery minder built in, I hope that is correct.

I only see 2 ac's in the picture so I'm guessing that his 2 bathroom vents are behind the camera.
