WFCO 8712 with MPPT 100/20 with Load Out

I just purchased a MPPT 100/20 with Load Out to replace my Renogy Rover Elite 20.
What I need to know is how I would connect my "LOAD" terminals on the controller so everything that is used while on battery goes through it. But, I would like to have the battery charge and have all the circuits get power from the 120v when on shore power. Is this possible?


OR - Do i connect the converter panel to my "LOAD" and remove the ability to have the battery charge when on "SHORE POWER"?

Here is what i have now.

I hope this all makes since.

Here is what i ended up doing.
All seems to be good and working (and not fires! LOL).

W/O shore power connected, everything works on the camper thru the controller and directs power to the WFCO panel. CHECK
WITH shore power connected, amp draw that the controller sees goes to zero, the WFCO powers all the devices & also charges the battery.

I think i'm good b/c the BMS on the Battleborn will manage the charging of the battery and the WFCO will only give out 13.6VDC 12A max. And really, I plan to do most of my camping off grid. I will rarely connect to shore power. I plan to charge my battery at the house using the NOCO 5.

Thoughts from anyone?
