Portable Solar Panel

I have a 105 watt portable solar panel with solar charge controller to provide a boost to the battery while dry camping for a couple of days. Would it be better to attach the solar panel to the battery using the fused battery clamps or the 10 amp Furion solar input that is fused on the RV?

It shouldn't make any difference. The solar input port is certainly easier.

My Renogy 100w 'suit case' panel with 20A PWM controller did about 5-6A max output last trip... so I wasn't too worried about using the Zamp plug/port.

Might be a different story once peak summer sun gets here...

I put a 7 pin plug on my portable suitcase solar panel and just plug it into the trailer that way. I've seen it push 6.4 amps on a really good day.
I have a 15 foot extension cord for it to.
