Thanks! That solution occurred to me, but don't see a simple (relatively) way of routing the secondary leads into the converter area.
After some thought. I bought a volt amp with a hall sensor. I can drop that "toroid" over the B+ and move on. Too simple...
I think? Thought the other was "too simple" too.
The cheapo shunts have a short life span due to heat cycling. The toroid may live longer. No isolator required.
Shunts in B+ can be a bit dangerous...
I'll post the outcome/end result.
