Voltage Drops

To deal with the voltage drop problem with the AP mount, I've
designed the following circuit:

Initial tests of the DC-DC converter are very promising, but
it's only 66% efficient, which is the reason I run only the mount
off it in the system. This configuration also minimizes the amperage
requirement for the converter, making it conceivable to use
a Nesco 30W unit.

Comments are very welcome.
