What do these DC breakers mount in? I could not find any single breaker panel boxes.
Since I am cheap, I took a 1/8 Lexan or Plexiglass sheet and just drill out openings for the breakers. Class A breakers take a 5/8 inch main hole and two small screw holes. Cut 5/8 opening with Forstner bit for a clean hole. Class A breakers are 3/4 inch between centers. I mount this sheet to a 1/2 plywood panel with bigger slots for breakers to support Lexan sheet. I ended up only using 1 row of breakers for AC and one for DC for van, even though I cut 3 rows. My main input breakers are at the top of each row (2 pole for AC). And all wire should be stranded due to vibration (just in case that is not self evident). You can also buy fabricated panels, but they can get pricey, and they generally come pre-fitted with some breakers which may not match what you want.
