Adding a panel to existing camper

HI. Been off grid for 16 years. Not completely ignorant but.... I bought a truck camper that has a 100 watt panel. Cheesy 7 amp controller and former owner put in 4 marine batteries. I just got a 30 amp charger and I have a 75 watt orphaned panel I want to add...keeping it mobile. Just started to look at how the existing 12v panel is wired. It goes from 8ga to 10 and then I think to 12. I'm probably going to bring 8ga all the way to the new controller but I'm not sure whether to tie the 75 watt one into it. I'm very remote in Mexico and don't have too many parts options. What's the simplest way to tie them together til I can get a combiner box? Ideally I'd like to have some way of just plugging in the mobile panel.
