Hold Everything.....

You only have 380 watts total on the line? That comes to just a little over 3 amps draw at 120 volts. 400 feet or not, the #10ga wire is plenty, and you don't need any more than a 15 amp breaker. But use a gfi type breaker.
If you do go to low voltage, say a 12 volt system, then you will need to draw 30 plus amps to get the same watts.
