    So in my case, I guess if the switch is Off then the converter won't charge the battery because the converter apparently joins the system on the fuse panel side of the switch not the battery side. Hmmmmm
    My 303 is wired as Jim describes in this post. Never made sense to me either . Having a "disconnect switch" in the middle of an electrical system that disconnects some things but not other things is just a source of confusion. I replaced mine (as many others on this forum have done) with a true disconnect at the batteries so that I know when the batteries are truly isolated. This does leave everything else powered by the converter if shore power is connected.

    Different models/manufacturers wire the battery cutoff differently, there is no standard. The only way to know for sure is to test your own RV.
