I have an X-210 and love the idea of solar just bolted flat to the roof. I'd love to see your set-up, too, if you post or send pictures.

Thanks
Steve

Default Solar Panels

We have a 2014 Fun Finder 189FBS and we are using the Group 24 deep cycle battery that came with the trailer. After discovering that the battery is only good for about two days of minimal use with no charging we purchased a 100 Watt Monocrystaline solar panel suitcase (or is it suitcase solar panel) from Rxxxgy. Easy setup with alligator clips that connect directly to the battery posts. Yes, you spend a few minutes setting it up but the ability to move it around (has a 16 ft. cable) as needed to get best sunlight makes it worthwhile. No more dead battery with lots of power for the night time. If the 12 volt battery doesn't hold up we may upgrade to two six volt deep cycle (golf cart) batteries in the future. For now, we are extremely happy with our solar setup. I wonder how much solar panel you could get on the roof of a 189FBS or FDS.
