I just camped for days in the trailer because my wife was COVID positive. Fridge was on AC (absorption type), water heater on electric, and A/C running, converter on. I had zero issues. No tripping breakers, no hot electrical connections.
A way to figure out why it worked so well is to conduct a load inventory. Make a list of the devices, figure out the amperage they pull, and figure out which ones run at the same time as others. What you see in that will tell you why it worked for you. There's no mystery to it- just tedium.
