Good evening to all. I've just bought an enclosed trailer and is starting a full renovation. I'm a little bit confused on how to implement the electrical installation. This is what I want: 9ea outlets-two of which is exterior for Tire Warmers, Air Conditioning and Interior Lights. I am opting for a 30amp connection but see so many type of connections. I want a Twist Lock and waterproof connection. Also a connection for a regular 110 connection. Maybe a combination receiving unit. I'm grateful for any advice.

Just do a 30 amp RV connection and get the adapters for 110. Run into a breaker box and branch out from there using ohms law for the breaker allocation for outlets. The outside outlets will see the most current use due to tire warmers. You may have a high amperage breaker inside depending on microwave/coffee pot.

Thank you very much

Recommend you also utilize GFCI outlets, as well as wiring to ensure you inadvertently don't get a "hot" trailer chassis / skin. Many articles written on this topic.

First. No offense, but if you have no electrical experience be careful. you may not want to do this yourself.
Second. Sounds like you may be asking more than you are capable of running on a 30amp service. Just because you can add all those outlets doesn’t mean you can run it all at the same time.
