The first question is what your goal is in adding solar. This will help determine how much real estate you will need. If it is merely battery health while parked and "topping off" FLA charges, a relatively small panel will do. If you aspire to making a significant contribution to your off-grid running time, that is a different story.

I have an onboard generator so in a pinch I can run my microwave or air-conditioner for short periods of time.

Mostly I’m thinking about fans for airflow, being able to run my laptop, tablet, USB chargers etc.
