Any help would be appreciated.
So you want to fuse the circuits at 20 Amps, then try to keep the load on each circuit under about 15 Amps, Get smaller breakers if you can, and don't forget a GFCI protecting the whole installation.
I'd have the following:
2. AC 1
3. AC 2
4. Fridge and Lights
If I had six circuits available I'd either split the outlets or add external outlets which are amazingly useful on an RV.
Remember you will be limited in the power you can draw even with shore-power. The most you can use is 50 amps, and often it will be 30 Amps.
