Except for the split and small gauge wire, that is the way it came from the factory. I would remove the small gauge wire. Replace it with the proper size, put a junction box in and connect the two cables. Or, if the previous owner did not cut any of it out and it is still long enough, pull the bigger wire back up to the AC panel where is was originally connected. Third option, install a hard wire EMS between the two cables; but I would still replace the small gauge wire. The #10 wire is good for 55A; about half what the #6 wire is rated for.
Since there is no evidence of DC cabling (it would be quite large) I doubt that unit ever had an inverter. In any case, an inverter would not be put in line with the shore power; that is not how it works.
Something like this was probably installed.
A little expensive; now you know why someone took it out.
