Living well electrically (as the old tv ads used to advise) is not really practical on just 30A. What you really need is to upgrade that rig to 50A. You are trying to utilize power like you would in a stick home that typically has 150-200 amps available, but you only have 30.

Using a toaster oven and other high amp heating devices is just plain impractical with that limited amount of power.

About how much would it cost to upgrade it to 50A?
