1) The solar panels charge the batteries even when the battery disconnect is turned off?
2) Since it has solar to charge the batteries, should I still enable the battery disconnect when not in use for about a week? We will probably be using it every 1-2 weeks or so for now until big winter comes.
3) On the little panel for the TV on the ceiling above the TV in the kitchen, there is a little button and when it's "on" a little green light comes on. I have no idea what thats for - something with the TV connections but I can't get close enough to it to see what it says on it. Anyone have any ideas?
There are a lot of variables in there that make it difficult to answer the first two questions. It would depend on how and where your solar controller is located and where in-inline your disconnect is.
Number 2 (see the above), but typically I leave solar on even if it's going to sit for awhile, but again... that depends on your solar controller.
For #3 - My guess would be that that is probably the signal booster for the TV antenna.
