On the weekend I completed installation of two 125W solar panels on my 5th wheel. I had planned to include a switch in the cabling between the combo box on my roof and the controller, but when I went to pick it up at the local RV dealer, the guy I talked to said it can cause damage to the panels or controller to disconnect the power. This sounded strange to me, so I figured I'd just do the install and see how things go... installing the switch later if it seemed appropriate.
Having the solar running now for a few days, and only using the trailer every couple of weeks for the weekends mainly, I figure it might be best to not have the batteries charging all the time. I'd just switch it on the night before we go out so it tops up again during the next day. I'm hoping to get a few answers from the knowledgeable people here:
Thanks in advance for any help.
