Anyone aded solar panels to the TV to feed the trailer?
I am outta room on camper.
I know how to do it, so I am not looking for suggestions or instructions,
rather I am interested in hearing how it worked and any issues a person who did this might have had (not any ideas on what could happen thanks).

Haven't tried putting solar on our vehicle to feed RV, but we do have a suitcase solar panel that we put out at times to help boost charging from rooftop panels, nice advantage is it can easily be repositioned to avoid shade and maximize output throughout the day.
