Can I connect my Renogy solar suitcase

My RV is solar-ready. How do I plug-in?
Solar-ready does not necessarily mean that an RV is compatible and ready to go with any
solar setup. Instead, it usually means that your RV is ready-to-use with the RV
Renogy systems are designed to make direct battery connections.
While it is possible to use an adapter cable to connect a Renogy system to your RV,
you will need to contact your RV manufacturer or a professional installer regarding
the correct cable. As every manufacturer and vendor does things differently, we are
to make recommendations regarding compatibility. For solar-ready RVs using an SAE
Renogy carries an SAE adapter cable. We do not offer any other adapters.
Can I expand my solar suitcase?
Please be advised that product alteration is required to expand suitcases with
prewired charge controllers and would void the warranty.
If you plan on expanding your system in the future, we recommend purchasing a
suitcase without a charge controller or our Portable RV kit. By buying the components
separately, no product modification is necessary to expand your solar setup.
