How old are the valves? They have been mostly compression fittings for a long time. You should not need to solder. Sharkbites have worked well for me.

Actually, mine is from the '50's.

I'd like recommendations for specific lamp fixtures that might be easily retrofitted into that space. 240 watts to light my little kitchen is too high.

No, it won't. 17 VDC is normal input (under load) for 12 VDC battery charging. That there is no charge controller seems a design issue, but once again, 12.3 VDC input will not charge a 12V battery.
