Re: wiring diagram and questions

It is always best to keep the number of wires at each battery post as few as possible. A short jumper from house positive to a bus where the other connections terminate works well. Same with the negative side, remembering that the shunt for the monitor has to be first in line with all loads following after the shunt.

Multiple charge sources are not a problem on the same battery bank.
