I would recommend the hardwired unit, but either way the PI is a great choice.

Every time I get close, another question..................

So, why the hardwired? The hardwired installation instructions say I have to cut the power cord, wire this thing into it somehow, and the other unit is already a part of the power cord.

I'm trying to get what I need, but I can't figure out where the hardwired unit goes, how to wire it in since the specs say "cut the power cord" (Which makes me uncomfortable), or why it's better.

Can you help me with these 3 questions?

And thanks, so far.

Tubbs has some great pics. You will need to cut the power between between the incoming power and the converter/power panel. Why? It is always there, you won't forget it, it won't get wet and potentially fault, and if you get the optional remote display you can read all of the information about the electrical system from inside the camper. Oh, it won't "get legs" either.
