Here is my old amperage plan that I used to size my desired solar panel. STRONGLY advise you should do the same. Also, changing to LED's allowed me to downsize my panel and save much room/weight.....I have a lot of lights and the halogen bulbs are power hogs...HUGE.

Key to this plan is a good battery monitor that can give you insight into amperage draw of your various devices.
