Default Solar Ameri-Lite Conquest 197BH

Looking toward boon docking and working through generator vs. solar. We stay in forests typically. Can anyone provide help on a solar set-up for Ameri-Lite Conquest 197BH. Has external plug for solar at front right of until. Beyond that not sure much more. Thanks for help!

several small 100w panels might suffice for your low draw needs, but if you really 'are' mostly in 'forests', then you'll not be getting a lot of sunlight - so a generator is really a better option, more powerful, more predictable, and can still be used sparingly to charge the battery(s) for only several hours over the course of a day. It's also the only option if you want air conditioning.

Before you start I would check out handy Bob's blog. He goes into detail on the rv solar setup it will save you money in the long run to read up before you start.
