Default Solar Panel

Hello all, I just had a 50 watt solar panel installed...I would love to know if anyone else has done this. I am in NJ and won't be out again until end of March. I got the work done three weeks ago and so far I have not gone below two lights on my monitor. That is with only the solor monitor lights, carbon monitor and those lights associated with theTV. My goal is to have enough battery to run fridge, little bit of pump and ceiling fan for four nights out. I mostly camp on festival venues without electricity and this past Summer was mostly ok except for a few brutal weekends where I was down to one light at begining of 3rd day..had to plug into car to get the slide in. I took the recommendation of my dealer as to what size to get and I can add more, but then apparently I would not have enough battery storage. (nothing is easy). Right now I have two 12 volt deep cycle batteries. I appreciate any help or comments on this. I had expected the battery to be 4 lights and it isn't.
