I don’t think so. That’s the way I have it wired now. Just not sure what side of the shunt to connect the chassis ground. Have it on the inverter/converter side of the shunt now. Seems like maybe it should be on the battery side so all current from the negative of the battery must go through the shunt.

Chassis ground cable goes to "load/chargers" side of the shunt.

I have no idea what's on that drawing, but the answer is very simple:

-only- connect the battery minus to the battery side of the shunt, all the rest to the 'load / charger' side of the shunt.
