Like you I have the solar panel off my prior unit.
And in the off season, when the sun is low on the horizon, is when the furnace is used the most.
I hope the two 6 volts are up to the task of running the furnace overnight and I'm concerned about topping up the batteries in the daytime. I hope an additional, panel will help.
What I had done on my prior rig was run a cable, just white lampcord out the AC shore power plug hole.
I used Deans remote control car battery plugs to connect the cable to the panel to this. The deans connectors are very small, very sturdy and easily take 30 amps.
The problem then becomes the inside wiring up to the back of the solar controller. The panels are added in parallel with the rooftop unit. I don't yet know how to do this part.
