Easysolar offgrid not prioritising PV and draining battery instead

Easysolar 48/3000 as an offgrid with an unmanaged battery. Once the battery reaches 95% for the day, it is opting to run loads off the battery despite there being plenty of PV available. Really want it to maintain the battery charge for night time. Believe assistants cannot be used in this offgrid configuration so any suggestions? Cheers

In Off grid there are no options in prioritize as the MPPT charger controller does supply the load as much as needed and if there is power left the charging of the battery will be done.

If the battery is discharging during load while there is enough solar power, please have a look at the charge settings of the MPPT
