Does anybody make something like that which will also take solar panels?

It would be nice to have a simple system that accepts a plug to the grid, a small load we use, a small battery system and solar system for our small trailers and members like me that really don't understand elec-trick-city.

I'm not sure what you are asking Roy, but to add solar all you do is run two wires from the solar panel to a controller and run a second set of two wires from the controller to the battery terminals.

David- Thanks for the parts lists! This is exactly what I needed.
Tom- Sadly, while I am handy in many things wiring is not one of them. There is also a time crunch before my next show, and I would like to have a working outlet and light before then.
Hopefully showing up with my own stuff may differ some of the costs. The shop guy did estimate about 10hrs labor.

Bob- A good idea! I plan on bugging them later for some input. Rennie labor is good and cheap, but it is far from timely.
Mary and Bob- Happy birthday! And you're in NY? I just left that state, darn! Thanks for the lead on the converter!
