We have a Renogy portable solar 100w suit case which we used to just plug in to a side of 2015 R-pod 172.  Now we sold the 172 and getting 2020 R-pod 176 which has solar wire ready port on the roof top by Go Power. We like a movable portable solar panel than fixed one on the rooftop.  Can anyone please tell us if we can use movable solar panel to 2020 model that has a port on the rooftop?  If so, how?  We are no electricians at all.  We appreciate if someone could explain in dummy 101 level language.     Thanks!

You can just hook it to the battery(ies) should have come with clamps. You could also add a side port, just like you had on the 172, wired to the batteries.

If you used the Solar-on-the-Side you have a SAE connector. I took another and connected directly to the battery.
