Attaching a portable solar panel to a Corado T 135

We have an electro block EBL 119 transformer 100 watt portable solar panels with a land star PWM solar charge controller. What do we need to do to use this to charge our 12v battery. All help and advice gladly received

You can make it really simple by going from the panel to the controller and then direct to the battery, we have never gone via the vans electrics, always connect to the battery before the panel.

Do we wire into the transformer? We have tried straight into the leisure battery and that didn’t work

When you say never direct Kev, is it likely to goose something if you do (as the OP has done)?
