Solar panel install on enclosed trailer

I got tired of looking for shore power to keep my deep cycle charged, and 120vac is hit and miss at most fields, so I installed a pair of 100w solar panels on the roof. The 30a controller keeps the battery topped off and desulfates as well.

At noon sun, the panel makes close to 200 watts and over 11 amps.
