Your statement is true. However, in your first MH being wired that way defeated the purpose of the disconnect switch. It was still possible for the Converter/charger to discharge your battery while not connect to shore power or generator.
I suspect either it was an older MH and the Converter was just a charger or someone before you had done some changes. In today's RVs the Converter is never on the battery side of the disconnect.
