Charlie, those instructions are a good post! In your case, and I suspect anyone who has this panel, there is no danger of reverse current because it has a blocking diode, and, there is no need to disconnect it from the battery when the trailer is receiving power from some other source, such as a tow vehicle or shore power.

I'd question the advice from a "thread" that said to disconnect the panel when towing. It doesn't seem reasonable to me.

It seems logical there would be a diode first out from the solar panel to prevent damage. I have a good stack of manuals that came with this HI-LO that I need to share, I have just not been full of ambition lately, that is one of the reasons I am not ready to camp this year. I could not find ther book on the solar controller, but I probably overlooked it. I will look again.
