What do you do...Solar Panels

I had panels put on mine last fall, the system has a "Shut Off" switch.

Do you leave your panels ON all the time (Even in storage..Outside) or do you shut them off?

Left mine on all winter, kept the batteries at 100%, would you really need to or could you shut them off and turn back on at a certain battery level?

Just wonderin

Gunny if you have a half decent charge controller, leave them on and just check the water levels once a month or so.
