The Trik-L-Start unit is connected there so the solar can charge both the house and the chassis batteries. It is also independent of both disconnect solenoids so will charge all the time. You could also connect directly to the House batteries but that just adds more wiring in an already busy area and is further to reach than the charge solenoid.
I brought the connection from the roof through a pocket door cavity and mounted my MPPT controller on the bedroom wall so I could easily monitor the system. I also installed a marine 30 amp switchable breaker in the chassis electrical compartment breaker panel so I could disconnect the feed if required.
Good luck - it is really simpler than it appears in my description,
