Anyone Interested In A Solar "How To"????

After I do the "how to", if anyone has questions about their particular situation, I would be glad to address these as well. Anyone interested?

I think it would be a great if you would---I bought the 45 watt one from Harbor Freight---bulky-to be able to use--but I would enjoy anything you have to Offer to us all.

Sure would help me a lot. Although there are lots of discussions of adding solar power, most seem to stop short of exactly how things connect up once the wire is inside the Casita. And what options there are between the solar panel and the battery. The panels are easy to choose from (well sort of) but between the panel and the battery connection there seems to be sort of a void. Sure would like to see how the panel to battery connection takes place (is it as simple as positive to positive and negative to negative at the battery posts?), how this interacts with the factory wiring including the inverter, and the different options for power monitoring, and how that connects in the circuit.

That would be great !!! Now-a-days, eveyone is talking about alternative sources of power. However, when you do internet searches you constantly get confronted with the "Sales Pitch" web sites. I really want to acquire the knowledge first, then subsequently be able to make an informed decision if I want to purchase any thing.
As you mentioned "different options, batteries, and COST". You should also include reference to suppliers.
Yes, very interested.
