tripped breakers

I have no idea why the generator caused that. Is it an inverter generator? Should not matter how fast it is running. A converter could draw full generator output

This doesn't apply to a fiver provided the pivot point is forward of the tug's rear axle

So anyone suggesting otherwise is just guessing

solar charge controller

The wires will have a label that reads “Solar.”. Yellow is meant to be positive and green negative.
Thanks for the info. I will look it over shortly...

Diesel heaters?

On a 16 ft trailer it would work fine, ours is 29 ft long. I seen a guy on YouTube that installed 2 in a 25 ft motor home. There are a.coue of others that have installed then in SOB's of good...
