What you want to see:

1. A breaker for the hot (black) wire....coming into and going out of that breaker;

2. A second breaker, mechanically tied to the first one so that they both are switched on or off simultaneously, with the neutral (white) wire coming into and going out of that breaker; and

3. A green wire going to the grounding bus....no breaker.

The black wire coming out of the first breaker then goes to power the other two breakers for outlets and for your battery charger.

I attached a diagram. Let me know if I am getting the concept (sorry if I am not).
