My previous comments may have been a bit cryptic. Here's the longer version as best as I recall:
You need 2 high current bridge rectifiers each capable of handling full shore power current. They are square devices with a bolt hole in the center and four spade connector terminals on the back 1 labeled +, one - and two usually labeled AC.
About 30 sq in of aluminium 1/8 inch thick for a heat sink.
Wire to make connections.
Stainess steel bolts and nuts to mount the rectiifers to the aluminium.
You're only ging to use the + and - terminals that are diagonally opposie eachother on the bridge recitfire, so cut off the other two terminals.
Mount the rectifiers on the heat sink with the bolts spacing the recitfiers at lest 4" apart. It helps to put heatsink grease in the cavity when mounting the recitfiers if you have it.
Hook one ground wire end to the + and the other to the - . Hook the second bridge in parallel. That way if one recitfer blows then the other will carry the load
