I believe based upon the information provided (for which I am very grateful) that I have now fused the house bank correctly.

This is how it fits into my overall solar/battery update for summer 2014.

Comments appreciated.
The shore charger does not have to be connected to both battery banks. The ACR takes care of that. I would connect a single output from it to the house bank positive bus with the appropriate fuse.

I would also skip the solar switch - it is not necessary.

So, is that a yes? Should there be an Automatic Combining Relay or an Echo Charger between the + posts in this drawing?

Just trying to parse out a clearer understanding.

Yes, properly fused. It isn't there because the subject was switching.
