As long as the battery cables aren't touching each other or the frame of the trailer you're good. The converter will run all the 12V stuff when the battery is removed and you're plugged into shore power.
This raises an interesting question for me. Has anyone seen where a battery bank that is severely discharged could out draw a 1000W generator just in charging? If so, how big was the battery bank?
I have 220 a/h of battery, but don't yet know how much they can pull when in deep need of power. Adding the high draw of the slide during this early charging "might" overrun a little 1000W generator.
Of course if that happened, a battery disconnect "jump starting" the trailer from the tow vehicle would get you out of trouble..
Just thinking out loud here...
