Hi, I'm new to this forum and wanted to ask a question. I have 4 solar panels. 2 and 2 are exactly the same. I'm trying to figure out my best option to wire these panels on top of my van. I'd like to use only 10g wire and get the most power out of all panels. The panels are pretty similar but different and that's what was making me think of wiring in series parallel. Wiring in series sounds like a might not get the best performance when one panel doesn't have good lighting but I'm not sure.

Panel details:

Renogy 175 Watt 12V (quantity of 2)

Max Power: 175W Open Circuit Voltage: 21.6V

Short Circuit Current: 10.35A

Opitmum Operating Voltage: 17.95V

Optimum Operating Current: 9.75A

AM Solar SF160 (quantity of 2)

Open Circuit Voltage (Voc): 22V

Short Circuit Current (Isc): 9.5A

Maximum Power: 160W

Maximum Power Voltage (Vmpp): 18V

Maximum Power Current (Impp): 8.88A

What is my best option for wiring? How many amps would I have?
