On some models, the circuit breaker that controls the A/C also controls the converter. Just be aware that the 1st time that you forget to unplug your inverter when you connect to shore power (for whatever reason), you will instantly fry your inverter. The ATS is cheap insurance and avoids having to remember all that switching stuff.
It would be physically impossible to fry the converter. You have to unplug to connect to shore power.
