It can be on all the time - even when hooked up to shore power. The charge controller will send or not send the solar power to the batteries as needed.

The disconnect would be more for when you need to do maintenance I would think - but (carefully) disconnecting the wires at the controller would accomplish the same thing.

The controller has an on/off switch
So if I have to I would use that
I just want the simplest system with least amount of connections to corrode over time
