My choice of battery is the Interstate Deep Cycle green top. Awesome x 2.
Thanks for the battery recommendation, that was going to be not far down the list for items I need to get once the rest of the electrical was sorted.

I'm not sure what any of those have to do with the converter, other than a new fridge might draw a couple milliamps of DC power if your old one didn't.

Yes to the cabin. I will be running a AGM battery and have a smart charger pendent on the converter.
