Well, that's valuable info. I had no idea those SD AC breakers were DC rated. Hmm......

I think your DC solutions are cleaner though IMO. Still need the breaker panel or disconnect box to go with the Square D's.

I learned this when doing the solar. It saved me a bunch of money instead of buying the dedicated solar ones like Midnight and such. I learned this from the Solar Forum you have linked to a couple times. NAWS. BB there is quite an educator as well as Caribocoot and a few others.

I usually just unscrew my negative terminal and call it good. I plan on buying a what I call twinkle charger/battery maintainer to put onto my battery when I am away.

I have these in my setup
Essentially they are quick connect fittings so when in storage I can disconnect the battery if desired. It also allows me to quickly move 1 battery/box between the camper and my boat to power the trolling motor. Simply plug and play with no worry about screwing up the positive and negative wires.

I also have my battery charger wired up with these so I can simply plug it in without opening the box. Should I need it for a regular battery, then I have a set of alligator clips wired up to plug into the quick connect.

Eventually I may add a splitter so I can then have a pigtail feed an auxiliary power port but that's not a priority for now.
