Default Fridge/Solar/Dual Battery setup

Hey team, I see another thread here for a similar setup but I thought the more we share about the PS the better. I've been doing all this myself with little prior knowledge of this type of setup so please forgive any oversights.

Gear so far is as follows,

Fridge - Paid $665.00: http://www.bcf.com.au/Product/Dometi...-Litres/134789

DCDC - Paid $330: http://www.intervolt.com/product/in-...ttery-charger/

Solar Panel - Paid $599: https://www.anacondastores.com/campi...t/p/BP90041889

Dual Battery plate - Paid $215 with Coupon: https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/Dual-Batte...=1452851506020

Yet to pick a battery as it must be within the dimensions of the bracket but also have plenty of AH for my needs. Really stuck on this one, even my local battery center had few options.
Here is the quick arvo install of the plate anyway team, all necessary steps are in the kit. Hope the pics can help someone out

Ended up giving up on the perfect AGM that fits 265mm and grabbed a Century

Paid $185 on special. 75AH should be ok for now.

Bit more progress today. Got the run of 6mm twin from engine bay to boot cigar socket. Also ran the cable for the intervolt controller. Noticed a key holder for the fob under the gear selector in that parcel, I assume it's for programming but works for me haha.

My aux battery is 89AH and does the job easily so yours should be fine.

Should have the Intervolt cabled in this weekend and I'll soon find out if the little 75ah can keep up :-)

Got it all in roughly for now as I still can't find a suitable long term position for the dc-dc charger. Just made a plate atop the main battery to get us going over Xmas. The auxiliary 75ah does 12+ hours easily and the car kept it topped up between stops without issue. I was getting between 1 - 21amp charge from the primary battery while driving. The solar panel was putting out 4 - 11 amp depending on time of day.
