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.

FWIW one unit was a 2001 Coachmen, the second a 2012 Fourwinds. One of the few things I am sure of is that if it can be done either way then it will be done either way. It seems that in a world of 2 choices somebody continuously finds "a better way". And I am not just talking about shade tree mechanics. I have seen engineers do the same thing. ;-)
