Questions?: Do you know where and what I need to add solar panels to this 2019 Forest River 167RB Salem camper?

That is a pretty small travel trailer:
Wow, small trailers are some of my favorites! They are light and efficent. They don’t need as much power, good thing because they have a pretty small roof to install panels.
You will need to see how many panels you can fit on the roof. I would guess it would be only one or two solar panels. The 190’s below are probably going to be your best panel for the size.
Are you looking for where your prewired solar cables are in your RV?
A program designed to help the consumer with solar panel installs has caused them a lot of grief due to hard to find cable locations and wiring diagrams. Here are a few reasons why RVers have had issues with the prewired or Wired for solar program.
After you max out the roof, you can then look at adding more power with a portable solar kit.
For Forest River Salem FSX owners, the compact roof size can sometimes pose a limitation for fixed solar installations. Given this constraint, portable solar panels become an excellent alternative. They offer the flexibility to harness sunlight efficiently, allowing owners to position them for optimal exposure. Such adaptability ensures uninterrupted power, making off-grid adventures more feasible and enjoyable.
Prepping your Forest River Salem for the RV season involves a thorough approach. Start with a deep clean, both inside and out, ensuring every nook is spotless. Invest in essential accessories like RV covers, organizers, and comfortable bedding. Consider new mats, awnings, or outdoor furniture for enhanced comfort. Finally, as the season ends, remember to winterize: drain water systems, seal openings, and check antifreeze levels to protect against colder temperatures. Proper care and accessorizing ensure optimal enjoyment and longevity.
