I have a 100w solar panel fitted to my Swift Voyager Motorhome which obviously has the usual regulator etc. if I were to purchase an additional portable panel what is the easiest way to connect it to charge my Leisure battery without too much messing with wires etc.???

If the panel wires are long enough and the regulator is accessible connect it to the regulator INPUT TERMINALS.
If this method is used it may be worth fitting a couple of extra connectors to the terminal screws for ease of connection.

Otherwise connect it directly to your leisure battery.

Hi

I glance at portable solar every so often and this one usually sells at £124.00 i.e one bidder. They have a few listings. Early on in year someone picked one up at £93.00 but the starting price has increased so perhaps Dec/Jan is the time to buy these things !

Looks OK - but I'm no expert ! I see at few comments on people wanting 5m not 3m long cables. I'm not advocating it but thought it may be worth a look for you.
