THe Charger side of my Kisae Inverter/Charger died, is a separate Charger good idea?

This is a solar system in a 93 Lance 480 camper rig. I guess going cheap charlie was not a good idea back in 2015' when I added an inverter, solar panel and retired the original series 6300 35 A charger that cooked my battery. I did read that there is an updrade that can fit in the original 6300 space and even some models that can charge Lithium. about 210$

Or do you suggest I go with a different charger? OR should I buy a whole new inverter/Charger? They can go under the sink where the inverter is. I am wanting to go low cost but not be stupid.
Also in the Green forum I posted my wiring diagram to see if anyone sees any wiring issues. It worked fine for a single batter system until I had to start charging my battery when at home with an external charger. I dont stay in pay campsites often but when I do I want to be able to recharge as much as possible and use aircon. My solar panel keeps the battery topped off at home so I really only plug in to the cool the fridge down for 24-36 hours before loading for a trip.
The biggest battery Lead Acid I can fit in my compartment is a size 29 115 AHr.

I do have a couple of wiring questions. it would be nice if my indoor 120 v AC outlets worked when I'm on shore power. currently the 120vac is passed through the inverter. But the AC in on the inverter doesn't produce DC. so wouldn't i disconnect that and run the Shore ac to the new converter. I guess I have concern that the internal 120vac system is connected to shore power and inverter AC out.
I am also looking for an overall electrical diagram check including my solar charging and monitor, shunt circuit, I have a thread over in the green forum but no one seems to want to post on it .
