What to leave on
Security cameras (hidden cameras that record any activity inside the RV, motion activated)
Converter: Depending on make and model, MOST modern Converters are ok to leave on.
Fridge: Optional

That is all folks.. Oh, if it's cold and you have water in the heater a HOT Rod is good too. I'd not leave a full 1200-1500 watt heater on but he Hot Rod is not that power hungry.

It's just that, a switch that shuts down everything that would be on the 12V circuits that could be a draw on the batteries (if you loose power), as well as makes sure everything on 12V is off anyway.

Like I said been doing it for 46 years with no problems. Just make sure the circuit is wired with 12-3 wire. and only run one AC.

The OP is sharing a 15 amp circuit. That would typically be wired with 14 gauge wire. Your 43 year experience is different.

I guess it is stupid to beat a dead horse but if the electric installation is in a commercial location, renting spaces to RV's the elect. circuit should be a dedicated circuit per the Nation electric code. So if you get an amp meter and tests same you would solve our disagreement. Just trying to help.

I suggest leaving the inverter off. If you lose commercial power with a Residential Refrigerator, it will run the battery down in one day. At least my rig will.
