Converter and Load Center question

OK, here are the converter and load center I have on hand:

I have no concerns about the converter. It seems to work ok, to the best of my ability to test it. I don't have a convenient way of applying a heavy load to it, but it seems to be working. The load center, I am not as sure about. I really don't have any way to check the breakers, and there is no cover for the housing and I am a little nervous about not covering it. I am not sure how safe I would be making a cover out of wood, so I am not sure how to proceed. I am to the place where I need to start thinking about wiring, and now is the time to buy something if I need it. I plan to do all my wiring with 14ga extension cords. Red jacketed for AC and blue jacketed for DC. I just need to get the load center settled so I can be sure where I am going to put it. I want it in the cabin so if there is a problem at night or when I am inside away from weather, I have the load center inside with me. BTW I am building a slouchy that will have one queen bed and one bunk.
in a 7 X10 cabin.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

For the cover buy tin for house heat ducting at home depot and cut it with tin snips and smooth the edges. Or any thin plastic about 1/8 or so depending on stiffness.
To test breakers find something rated for a higher load than in and plug it in. What are the breakers rated for?
