solar, inverter, and converter

I hooked up some solar panels to keep batteries charged and an inverter for shore-like power. I turned off breakers for AC and microwave, no problem there. Also turned off breaker for converter, this kills half outlets in TT. Is there a purpose for this or can I move converter to separate breaker?

Turning off your converter shouldn't have any impact on any of your outlets. It's a 12v system whereas your outlets are 110vac.

You can move it to a separate breaker... however.. I've never seen a rig that the converter wasn't already on it's own circuit.

If it is indeed impacting your 110vac systems there is something wonky going on there that should be investigated further.
