Coleman Light LX 1925BH New Owner

Hi, I Just purchased a 2017 Coleman Light LX 1925BH from Camping World. Its a basic unit with some nice features. The only thing that concerns me a little is that there doesn't seem to be much information, because it a fairly new line. I've been trying to find where the Solar Prep connection is and the dealership was no help.
If anyone is familiar with this model and knows the location, I would appreciate the help.
Also should this unit fall into Ultra-Lite or Travel Trailer forum?

Thank you for the information meterman.
Now, I just need to locate the outlet on my unit. It says it has one in the brochure and the Camping World advertisement, but haven't been able to locate it on the trailer.

According to the website it says you have a 'Solar Charging Connection'. They don't say which brand. There should be a small square black flip up cover somewhere in the general vicinity of the batteries that gives you a place to hook up portable panels.

I have a Furrion on my Concord and it looks like this. Apparently they also come in gray. You may have a Zamp Solar plug They are round and black with a small cover.

I just bought a 2017 16FB before Christmas and it has the "solar ready" option. Mine looks similar to what Aaron posted. It's on the road side of the unit near the front. The dealer couldn't tell me anything about it either. Not what was compatible, not where the wiring went, nothing. Click image for larger version

If they are wired the same as mine... hopefully.

It is a fused direct link to the battery, 10 amps. Here is the adapter, best price I have seen. Someone posted a link on here to an Ebay site where you could buy just the plug for ~$12-$15. It can also be used as a power feed to power up small battery powered items.

I use a Renogy 100 watt suitcase setup to top up the batteries on my motor home. There are several companies that make similar units. Great for boon docking at a state park, you can park in the shade and put the panels out in the sun.

FWIW I think Renogy is getting ready to discontinue the unit I have and sell an upgraded model with more efficient solar panels. They pop up on Ebay, Amazon and other sales sites periodically at a discounted price.

Sorry for the necro-post but I was just trying to figure out what this fused, direct to the battery connection was. You think it goes to where the charge controller would hook in (wherever that might be)? Or do they take that directly to the solar panel plug on the side?
