Battery Switch System Question

Hi All,
I have a '93 sportsmobile with a manual switch mounted on the rear bench seat panel to connect the house battery to the van's alternator to charge.

I also have solar panel to charge the house battery.

My question is, if i set the switch to the connected position when camping, Will the solar panel also charge the Van's Battery as well as the House Battery?

..easy enough to confirm.....when the sun is shining and the van is off and not plugged into shore power check the voltage on the starting battery..if it's the same (or very close to) the voltage shown on the solar controller (and house batt) then yes.....typically mid 13's to 14V or so.
