Any recommendation of a good solar kit!?

no sophistication is needed. This is to top up house batteries during dry camping.
I wander if my 2014 itasca navion have anythind "pre wired" or " solar ready" (whatever that means?) to accommodate the installation of additional hardware (panels wires and controller!?!?

Renogy has a simple kit on sale now, https://www.renogy.com/200-watt-12-volt-solar-rv-kit/. It's the same amount of work to put in a less efficient kit versus something more sophisticated and highly efficient. I installed a 200w system that I could easily expand to 400w for less than $1500. If your not the handy type, You might want to consider a solar suit case that you just set out in the sun and clip on your batteries when you want to use it, much easier than a complete install, 200w- https://www.amazon.com/Renogy-200-W...4698245&sprefix=solar+suitcase,aps,448&sr=8-3, or 100w- https://www.amazon.com/HQST-Monocry...4697825&sprefix=Solar+sui,aps,275&sr=8-8&th=1. If you do an Advanced search you'll find lots of threads where others detailed their installs. Here is the link to mine, https://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67873&highlight=2014+solar.

There are a number of members that sell various forms of "kits", too... and i'd rate them as better than the usual run-of-the-stores set-ups.

examples are HarryN, hein, ... and others whose names don't come immediately to mind (my apologies to them)
(hmm... maybe we could use a "members who sell solar" sticky thread...)

Why would anyone buy technology equipment from someone who either cannot spell portable, or is unwilling to proofread their listings ?

Your commt doesn't make cents and is just mean spirited. I guess a sine of our times.

That is the same starter kit we purchased two years ago and then easily added a third panel last year. We may upgrade to a fourth panel this year, along with adding more or upgrading the coach batteries.
Don't forget to apply for the Fed Solar Tax Credit!

Sounds like VanArt needs to contact you directly for advice. Renogy is having a great sale right now, that is a perfect starter kit! Their installation guide tells you everything you need for the installation. It really boils down to how much more money are you willing to spend for extra technology, like MPPT and bluetooth, and higher efficiency. I'm glad you are happy with your system!
