Going Solar - 2016 86SBS
We are full time residents in our new (to us!) 2016 86SBS and we want to install some solar panels.  Our rig has the two solar connections on the roof but absolutely no information as to what you can plug in there.  Can anyone advise how do you connect to this.  We assume that a 100W 12 Volt solar panel can plug straight in?  Do we need to put in a regulator between the solar panel and roof connections?

We are also a bit unhappy that there is no 12 Volt (cigarette type) outlet in the camper for charging cell phones and the like when we are boondocking.  We are thinking of fitting one but are not sure where the best spot is to pick up a 12 V supply.  The logical ones would be above the radio or next to the hood fan (both must have 12 Volt supplies somewhere in the area).  There should also probably be a supply somewhere on the wall between the bed and the washroom (as this is where Adventurer would fit the 12 Volt TV if we had one) but we are not sure.  Does anyone have any ideas?
