We develop a quenched thermodynamic formalism for a wide class of random maps with non-uniform expansion, where no Markov structure, no uniformly bounded degree or the existence of some expanding dynamics is required. We prove that every measurable and fibered C1-potential at high temperature admits a unique equilibrium state which satisfies a weak Gibbs property, and has exponential decay of correlations. The arguments combine a functional analytic approach for the decay of correlations (using Birkhoff cone methods) and Carathéodory-type structures to describe the relative pressure of not necessary compact invariant sets in random dynamical systems. We establish also a variational principle for the relative pressure of random dynamical systems.
