Electric 1 is 900w, 2 is 1800w. Total wattage allowed on 10amp is 2300w, if your kettle is any more than 500w then you can't use Electric 2.  You need to add up the wattages of all your appliances and make sure you stay below 2300w.
Use a gas kettle to give you more to play with.

We don't have a 'harmony control panel'.  The only control panel with EL1 or EL2 is the Truma control panel.  As Paul has said, EL1 limits the Truma to 900w whereas EL2 is 1800w.  The current drawn by the Truma is limited to about 4A on EL1 and about 8A on EL2.  What's left from the 10A supply is what's available to power the PX300 (which provides all your DC), the fridge if running on mains, the mains hotplate and any mains plug in devices e.g. electric kettle, microwave, hairdryer etc.  You can see your mains current usage on your EC700 control panel under Power Levels.  If you only have a 10A supply your Truma should be set to EL1.  You could also turn your hot water (and heating) off or set it to gas whilst using the mains hot plate or mains plug in devices.

No prob.  The power levels button bottom left hand corner on the EC700 control panel is very useful in your situation as it shows how much mains current you are using.
