I'm in the process of getting my rig to run on solar too...It's a 2018 Volante...that plug is pretty much useless, its just something they put there to help make the sale. I have yet to find a cord or plug that fits that that doesn't require sodering the wires to the plug.
With that said...you will need a different battery setup too. The battery it comes with is only rated at about 24 Amp Hours. You will burn through that in on overnight stop if you aren't careful.
I replaced my battery with two 6 volt deep cycle batteries that are rated at 125 Amp Hours. I bought a solar pannel with a controller that has aligator clamps to just clip onto the batteries. This will keep them charged an run all my DC things like lights, vent fans, water pump, and the slides.
I learned a lot from this Facebook group too, if you are really interested in setting up for solar this is a great place to start: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1730...853/?ref=br_rs
