Seems like your battery reserve isn't right. You're using a deep cycle battery? I just went on a 3 day 2 night boondocking trip this past weekend, with a single Group 24 (IIRC) battery, and by the time we packed up to leave on the 3rd day we still had 3 of 4 led's showing for power on the system monitor panel. "Almost 2 days" seems way too short IMO.

Last year we installed a 400 watt Renogy solar kit. Panels on top of roof and charge controller in the front storage pass through. Has been working like a charm! No worries about people stealing the four panels secured on the roof. Longest we went without charging was 2 1/2 weeks. Hooked up at a KOA for one night then went another week and a half. Figure $700-$800 for everything. Yes I Know it isn’t the portable kits, but it works well and I forget about it. Also charges when we are driving!
