From time to time I look and the charger is back on. I read about the default setting is on for the charger when power is applied, but I want the charger to stay off with constant shore power applied.
let it be on, no need to turn it off unless you are just to test the solar functions.
there is no conflict between shore power charging and the solar charging. solar controller will shut the solar charge off when it sees the battery voltage reaching the level which calls for no more charge.
