Inverter

2005 national dolphin.
When I shut the main power to the coach off at the door, should that shut the power to the inverter off?
My inverter still stays lit on the light thatís says charge.

No, the inverter/charger is hard wired to the batteries.

The switch system near the door will not handle the high current of an inverter/charger, its designed for standard house loads.

So is it bad for the inverter to stay on when parked for periods of time?
Is there another kind of shut off switch?
Should I install a perko switch?

Is the rig plugged into shore power?
The charge light should only be on when plugged in and "charging" the batteries.
