Get a modern deck mount converter and wire it direct to the battery or 12v system and let it run 24/7 when power is available.

Or you could go crazy and install a modern power distribution center. This would have all the 120v breakers and stack of 12v fuses all in one place. Depending on location of the main connections this might require pulling some wire to the central location.

I edited my original post as I am not an expert; You should not follow any of my suggestions except to contact a licensed electrician and maybe call Randy at Bestconverters and get his advice.

Good luck getting your charging system back up and running. Hopefully you will have your system back up and running while camping season is still here.

Sell the old charger on eBay, working or not - or I'll take it if you don't want to bother!
People collect stuff like that for garage art.

BTW, it would be better if the new charger was not mounted in the same compartment as the battery.

Good luck!

If you want to stay very basic, and you don't have a converter now, and you use hookups when camping, I would just install a cheap 10 to 20 amp automotive charger in its place. From your posts the refrigerator, micro wave, fan etc all run off of 120v the only thing you use 12v for is the lights is that correct?
