    New Solar powered cold trailer with an integrated passive cooling(phase change material)

    Where did you come up with "not compressor based" ? Phase change material to even things out sounds intriguing. Seems like it might even be applicable to residential refrigeration.

    LF280K max DISCHARGE current from 0...25C

    Looks like an error to me. I find the entire table suspect.

    Do I really need a DC-DC or can I go with a high power alternator?

    Many modern vehicles have a "smart alternator" that by design does not fully charge the battery. Instead it tries to keep the battery at a lowered state of charge so that when deceleration occurs, the alternator can ramp up and charge the battery, thereby taking advantage of the deceleration...

    New System for Van Camper - 12V or 24V?

    No, that is not what I am saying. I am saying that the 12 volt "house" system would be drawn off the 24 volt "house" system via the 24-12 volt converter.
