I have thought that. But the Manual for my PWM controllers says that to adjust settings, remove all connections except the connection to the battery.
I`ve done it that way to make adjustments, all went well,with batts uncovered, so less sure about that warning .
Fairly sure this came up on another thread and it was said that once a connection to a battery was removed, generation stopped (think it was Brian/Insequent who is knowledgeable on panels). I also wondered where the amps went when the regulator finds the batts are full, as mine often are. The panels must still be generating, but I think Brian had the answer, and quoted someone authoritative.
