    I have been using a 55 amp RV converter as a DC power supply for several years now if that was part of your original question. It is very quiet and more than capable. It would be better to "float" a battery or two across its output for filtering but really is unnecessary it is so "quiet."

    Also have been using a 30 converter from Amazon ($20.00 USD) that is just as quiet.

    Depends. If you're camping with access to power, i.e. campground 110V service, then no. You can just run a regular ham power supply off the 110V outlets in the camper. Or if your camper has a 110V gas generator, you can run the generator and use the 110V service. If you want to "boondock" and run the camper off of batteries/solar, then a 12V line from the camper's battery to the operating position can help. Use large gauge wire for long 12V runs --- lots of voltage drop for long runs at 12 volts.
