When new, this charger charged continuously in full or low sunlight, through the appropriate stages until it reached float.
Now 2 years later, if the battery is only slightly discharged but I have full sun it will charge as expected. If a cloud then covers the sun, instead of still charging continuously right when I need all the power I can get, the charge disconnects and reconnects about once per second. I can see this on an ammeter measuring the current from the solar panel. Hence I am only getting about half the charge that is available.
Why does the charger ration the power to the battery right when I need it to put all the possible charge through? Can I change something to make it charge continuously without have to bypass the charge controller? I have no load connections in use so the charger is simply there to charge the battery.
