A simple answer, but a starting point.

We have a 30 watt on our 03 Itasca Suncruiser and it's worthless.
However, I have a plan for you.
Internet: Solar Panels, can't remember the name of the company in Oregon, but it will appear on this web and there will be a phone number to call.
From what I wanted to do, I believe I'll need at least 100 watts.
Anyway, hope this helps.
Right now my problem is getting RV to Oregon.

I had heard that a charge controller may be needed.
When would one be needed or would a fuse do the same thing?

Very happy with them.
I bought the panels on eBay for $400.00 and the controller for $186.00 on eBay. Install cost was $500.00. Well worth the money.
We boondock at many NASCAR races without a problem.

The point is any storage battery (accumulator if you are English) slowly goes dead. With a 12V (okay 13.8V+) solar panel attached across the terminals even 25 mA for 8 hours a day cancels out the slow discharge and maybe even adds a little charge.
