In other words, in my example you'd essentially have four inputs and one output at the house bank pos and neg terminals. Correct?

Each of the supply lines has a diode or something to keep the other generation sources from harming it?

Your batt mon shunt will not work correctly as drawn.

ALL LOADS AND CHARGE SOURCES, INCLUDING THE ECHO, & START BATTERY MUST BE ON THE LOAD SIDE OF THE SHUNT.

NOTHING CONNECTS TO THE HOUSE BANK NEG POST OTHER THAN THE BATTERY SIDE OF THE SHUNT AND ANY BATTERIES IN THAT PHYSICAL BANK...
