[MPPT 100 30 smart] "Charger Enabled" option in VE connect app

In bulk mode when my battery is half charged the MPPT and the Orion can deliver 30A each. That makes 60A (scarce situation I know but it's possible). Then I want to be able to switch off the MPPT manually while I drive my car and switch on again when I stop driving. What do you think of doing it simply thanks to the VE connect app through the "Charger Enabled" switch in the MPPT settings ? Victron warns us that this switch is intended for maintenance purposes only. Why ?
Many thanks for your answers !

Hi @Yann Berry,

you can use that switch from within VictronConnect without any problems.

Hi @Stefanie,

Thank you for your answer. And do you know why Victron warns us about the use of this switch off of the MPPT ?

Hi Yann,

to be honest I've no idea. But I wouldn't see this as a serious warning in terms of "you have to fear damage" when you switch the MPPT off. It's rather a note that the switch is intended for maintenance purpose only.
