Yes if you connect the heavy gauge wires from the disconnect solenoids together everything should operate as normal. You need to leave the solenoid that jumps the two battery banks together in place so the engine alt can charge the house batteries. The solenoids aren't that expensive if choose to replace them. I don't recall exactly how much but I did replace one a few years ago.

Could I just leave the solenoid in place and wire jumper between top and bottom posts? Looking at this more seems that would be the way to go since this are hooked up on solid bars vs by wire.

Most definitely leave them in place and why not just temporarily jump the terminals using heavy wire and alligator clips.
Jumpers with clips make for a great trouble shooting device.
Try jumping from a hot terminal to the hot side of the solenoid coil, while you're at it, to determine if the solenoid is bad or just not getting power.
I mean have you even verified that this is indeed, your problem?
