Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Weak or not it is designed in a way from the manufacture to correctly keep that system going and battery charged (without extra load meaning nothing over what it is designed for), thus there would be no reason to disconnect a correct functioning system and leave your other systems to charge it.
Thank you!

Yes I did see that and in some cases a customer is still happy to receive the info, even if not I at least wanted to respond to you. Today was the first day I have been one since last month and I am not sure why no other experts have assisted you but when I come on I try to help out older questions for customers that have been waiting because in some cases they are still looking for the info. I do apologize no one reached out to you sooner and I will be happy to put that request in for you.
