I agree with Mr. Miller start with a good converter and eliminate a lot of problems
Steve, it's standard practice to use self-resetting circuit breakers in RVs on the circuits we have been discussing. These are specifically designed for vehicles with DC applications. My Escape
19' has several of them wired in from the factory. I will bet your Casita
has one between the battery
and the distribution panel. If you think it is dangerous and will corrode over time maybe you should remove it.
