I’ve had great service and pricing from Steve at Mandrake’s Solar Power (frequents the forum) and his website has a calculator you can use to determine what size panel you might need.

What size batteries do you have ?

Running as a freezer, go the biggest panels you can afford .....120 minimum....200 if you can afford it ..

I run a 40lt engle fridge with two 80watts bp solar these two panels keep the engle workinking fine with a 130amp hr fullrivers sealed battery. My advice a 120w solar panel bigger the better and a large capcity sealed battery

I mean 160 watt solar panel.
Running a waceo as freezer means more power to draw on than running as a fridge mode
