Verona Solar Prep Wiring

So after almost killing my house batteries while in storage, I'm ready to add some solar to keep the house battery bank charged while not in use. My 2020 Verona is equipped with solar prep which I have found the cables on the roof but cannot find where they terminate down in the basement. I also assume there is a cable already in place that runs back up to the cabinet control panel for a solar charge monitor but was curious about that as well. Not looking to add enough panels to boondock, but keeping the three house batteries topped off would be great. Anyone tackled this project that could share some insight?



Thanks,
Alan

The Red and Black cable from the roof are coiled up behind the chassis batteries.

On my 2020 Verona, the red and black and data wire are coiled by inverter. The red black run to roof. The data cable is behind back of cabinet over by magnum energy switch. I will post more later.

Thanks for all of the help. On my 2020 Verona I have looked around the house battery bank and around the inverter and did not find the cabling. Never looked around the chassis batteries but will as soon as I can. When I find them I will report back where they were. I appreciate the help!

As already mentioned the solar 10 gauge wires are right behind the inverter charger. All you’ll need is the panels and a controller. You can output the controller right to the power leads on the inverter.
