Solar 2003 National Tradewinds?????

Would the solar on my 2003 National Tradewinds came from factory or add on?


Have 2 small old-old panels laying flat on roof with wire going into Air conditioner.


Where would the be terminated? Controller?


I know there junk on my some day list!

The schematic in this post is for a 2003 Dolphin, may be about the same as yours.

Solar panel input is on the bottom of the board through a diode, fuse 7

Those panels were factory installed and are not connected to a controller.

We had a 2003 Trqdewinds LTC. It had a single panel attached to the roof directly behind the rear A/C unit on the roof. It failed within the first few years and I replaced it with a better unit. Due to low output, their was no need for a controler,
