Battery Disconnect Switch

Manual says that the battery disconnect switch must be in the on position for the battery to charge. Does that include while we are driving (in order to charge from the chassis)?

it would help if you told us what type of RV you're talking about.
i'm guessing a motorhome, since you said "chassis" but that's just a guess.

Yes the switch should be in the On position for the coach battery to be charged while driving. The switch is a momentary type switch that energizes a relay in the battery control box. Pressing the top of the switch energizes the relay to On, pressing the bottom of the switch deenergizes the relay to the Off position.
