I've checked our manual but nowhere does it say what capacity solar panel is fitted to our 2015 Nuevo EK...80w or 100w is my guess..anybody know definitively?

Do you know for sure that it's the original, fitted at the factory? The reason I ask is that it's not at all unusual for the original panel to be upgraded, if it has had a previous owner.

If it is the factory original, then probably the only definitive way is to phone A/S with your van's build number and ask what they fitted originally. Knowing what A/S fitted to someone else's Nuevo of around the same age won't be definitive, because A/S chop and change what they fit to their vans on a very regular basis!

My Nuevo ES (March 2015) would have come with a 30w panel (I have the brochure - it shows the same for the EK) had we not paid to substitute one with greater capacity. I think we had a 80w fitted, but it may be 100.

It would have been 80 Watts Cymro.

We did the same - somewhat grudgingly! I felt that A/S should have included the larger panel in the basic specifications, since the 30 Watt alternative is next to useless for most people.

It seemed as though they took the cheapest possible means to include "solar panel" in the specifications!!

Perhaps if you posted  the dimension someone could help .my 2014 came with a  useless 30 w . 100w solar panels  are a bit smaller  now   so will fit a nuevo roof . 120 w is the max for Sargent controller.

I managed to fit a 100w to my 2008 EK, but hunted down for the smallest I could find so it would fit.
