I ordered my dual slider Hr extended 3.7 on 3/9/2016.....I went with the dual battery/ho alternator for one reason....I plan to use a whynter 12v frig full time in van. I Know almost nothing of Solar but if I could hook up a 300watt panel to stock dual agm' life would be much simpler. I was not sure if the alternator and panel would be fighting each other and somehow blow up my new van....any input would be appreciated. FYI: I am very simple by I need to keep the solution very direct.

Could you tell me how you hooked up the 160 watt panel? Also, what kit did you buy? Where I go there is no shortage of sun. If you went 3 days without moving the van I should really be in the clear.
