Battery charger and battery disconnect

My question is when I have my camper plugged in at home will my battery charge with the battery disconnect in the off position or does it have to be in the on position?

I would say no. It will not charge batteries if disconnect is off.

i think the opposite. I believe the battery disconnect is from the the house so batteries don;t discharge. I still think it;s connected to converter.

The battery gets its charge from the converter if you disconnect the line between them there's no way for the converter to charge batterys

You will still have 12v from converter to the camper but the batteries will not charge.

Your battery cables go from the battery to the converter if you put a battery disconnect in one of those cables the converter cannot charge the batterys when disconnected.
Therefore battery disconnect must be (connected) to charge.
