We have an Isata 4 Class C. I have a pad and 30 AMP at home. This RV also has Solar. Do I need to keep it plugged in when Iím not using it or can I relying on solar to keep my batteries charged. Does it put a strain on the inverter leaving it plugged in?

You are mixing apples with tangerines. Your solar controller should be just fine if it is a factory install. You should turn your inverter off as you should have no 120v demand. The rest of this riddle depends on how long and where you are storing the unit.

Now riddle me this; Why will the folks in the Dynamax section not answer your questions?

I had my solar controller connected to the chassis battery as well, the coach batteries are charged first then the chassis. Not sure how yours is hooked up you might need a maintainer or small solar for the chassis. I think Mr. Duck has one.
But my solar doesnít work too well with a couple feet of snow on it lol, I pull the batteries out and put them on trickle maintainers.
