Ok a little late on my mod reply. Here is what I have done. I have installed
300 watts solar roof mounted with victron mppt controller feeding into 2-6 volt GC FLA batteries. I monitor all DC power with a Trimetric battery monitor. The batteries remain installed all year long, even though out a Manitoba winter with no adverse effects. The only negative in this setup is you have to keep the panels clear of snow, which I do after every snowfall.
I do check the water levels periodically but is only really a concern in the summer when the batteries are being charged and discharged. When I replace the batteries I will go with 6 volt AGM.
I installed a 1000 watt PSW inverter, with 1 circuit to the entertainment system controlled via. 3 way switch. This allows me to power the entertainment system from the CB panel or the PSW inverter with the flip of a switch when boondocking. No cords along the floor!
Our trailer had no USB outlet, so I installed one at the end of the kitchen counter and wired it in through a fuse to the electrical panel which is nearby.
I installed a Progressive industries 50 amp EMS with remote display. I don’t believe it’s ever had to protect me from erratic AC power, wherever we have camped, thankfully. Just good insurance!
We had a 3000 watt Honda inverter generator before we bought our silverback and it got a little heavy to lift in and out of the front storage. So I created a sliding tray system with the generator mounted on it. To use it I simply slide it out of the storage, Velcro a curtain over the opening to prevent exhaust from entering the storage. Start it and plug in the cord.
And then there’s my cheap version of the JT strong arm. I made two wooden blocks approximately 11 x 11x 5 inches. I used scrap 2x4, 3 pieces side by side then another 3 pieces at right angles on top then 3 more pieces at right angles to second layer.
I place these blocks under each landing leg before unhitching the truck. After the trailer is leveled I use two extendable cargo stay rods ( princess auto) in a criss cross pattern using the block at the bottom and top of landing leg on opposite side.
