Battery disconnect solar charging

I have a 2020 Eagle HT 284BHOK with an installed GoPower panel on the roof. If I engage the battery disconnect when storing the rv, will the batteries be maintained by the solar system? I have heard yes and no from different people I talk to...

Very easy to verify. Get a volt meter and read the voltage across the battery. With the battery disconnected from the rig with the disconnect switch if you still are reading a charging voltage of mid 13s on up in sunlight, you are good to go. Test it after a day or so to let any residual charge bleed off to make sure it is indeed charging. You can also compare sun/no sun readings which will tell you right away.
