This is a great wiring plan. One I used to prepare my CT. I believe it contains all aspects of 120 AC and 12V that you will need. Just modify it to suit your unique situation.

Look at top left portion of the system and see the converter/charger hooked to the battery.
Search the forum for different units. I have and like the PD4050 like this:

No! in fact it will kill your battery.

Look for a Progressive Dynamics PD-4000 series converter/charger. I use a PD-4045 in my teardrop and it has had no issues in the 2-1/2 years I've been using it. Steer clear of WFCO 8735 converter/chargers, they have a history of problems. Including my own which failed, was repaired under warranty, and failed again the first time I went camping with it ;-(
