Winniebago batteries

I have a 2005 Winnebago adventurer. Does the shoreline power charge the house batteries when the Aux battery switch is turned off?
your help and consideration is greatly appreciated,

Easy to find out. Check the house meter in your one place panel with and without the aux switch on. 13.8 or more volts means it is getting a charge.

Winnebago usually wires the house batteries so they are completely isolated when the battery disconnect switch is is switched to off.
Here is a representative schematic.

No does not charge when Aux Batt switch is off.

When I return from a trip, I usually leave ther switch on foe a day or so to make sure the battery is charged then turn it off until a day or so before leaving again. That way I'm sure to batteries don't get overcharged.
