I want to convert the money that remains after taxes are paid on the distribution and convert to a Roth.

No, you aren't, because you cannot convert an RMD from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.
You are allowed to convert some of your remaining traditional IRA, but you would owe additional taxes on this conversion.
