I am currently having a really nice custom trailer built for off road. It is basically an open utility trailer. I want to run a single deep cycle battery set up for on board power. Not running a fridge or anything big. Maybe a cell phone charger or some lights. My wife may want to run a 12v hair dryer.

Ok so here is what I want to do. I want to mount the battery in a sealed type box and have it be able to charge from the 7 pin connector from the truck and also from a small solar charger when not in use and on the trail. I have a 400 watt inverter at home w/600watt peak. I also want to have some cigarette outlets. Anyone have a schematic or parts list? I'm not sure what all that I need to make this work!
I am also a member on expedition portal if you have any suggestions from there.
Blessings.

I went with an solenoid isolator kit from this guy

Super easy to set up and very effective. Next I bought a fuse box:

and a grounding bar or busbar:

That's a start. obviously you will need plenty of 2ga cable, connectors, wire, loom, etc.
