So today I put in a new (motor) battery. As I was cleaning up the terminals I noticed that the cable from the house batteries to the disconnect had corroded and broke off at the battery. I still had power in the MH to all lights, etc. How is this possible? I do have a solar system but I don't understand. I turned off the disconnect and fixed the cable. Please educate me.

Gotta be an alternate path for the electricity to make its way. Negative or positive was disconnected?

The first picture shows 3- 0/1 gauge wires coming from the house batteries as well as 1 "smaller" wire. The one on top was the one broken and was connected to the left side of picture #2. I am not sure how long the wire was broken before I found it.
