I run a master kill switch between the battery and the inverter, I then run my 12 volt fuse block off the inverter side of the master kill switch. Shut the master and you shut down everything. I run acouple 12 volt led light strips, car radio, and usb charger, 12volt water pump and a 12car adapter all fused. You can run lights off the charge controller, I just find it easy to shut it all down. Last thing i want to do half way into a 3 hour ride is wonder if i forgot to turn something off. I run three solar batteries and four panels, but as you add to it the above works good.
The set up you have would be fine running off the charge controller depending how many lights, but if you run from the battery to a fuse panel you protect your stuff better and have more lights. just drain the battery down quicker.
