    What's the voltage when charging?

    It's possible the circuit breaker just isn't any good

    Try running a fuse do you have a dedicated fuse for the RIP kit connected to the battery?

    Check the ground on the VR it's possible it gets dirty as its grounded via the bolt into the frame.

    You should have a dedicated 30 AMP fuse for the RIP!

    The VR should have it's own dedicated fuse or breaker.
