Iím willing to use self-serve materials, but shouldnít have to go on a vast YouTube and forum search for what I would think would be common questions. Ok, rant over.
Your rant is a familiar one. Unfortunately there's no 'one size fits all' answer to your questions. The fridge and the tv, microwave are the biggest draw, You've got a solar panel and that will recharge the batteries on the road if you've got sunlight. You've also got room for an additional battery and that's probably a good idea. Looks like that means you can have 3 batteries and that's a lot for a trailer. Just monitor those batteries because if they go too low, their useful life will decrease dramatically.
As to the light, you've gotten some good suggestions.
