There’s two things being discussed here when the word “controller” is used...
1) solar controller: this digital device exclusively controls the current input from the solar panels to your batteries
2) system's check or Coach functions controller: this digital device is located inside the front door to provide you with information inside your coach. That is...LP level, battery status, fresh water tank level, etc

In the 2019, I believe that this is now a color, touch-screen display monitor vs 2018 and earlier models using an “old school” manual push button with idiot lites.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes, the system check is what I was referring to and you are correct in 2019 it is touch screen

Yes, two separate things.... The New control panels in 2019 models are called "Multi Plex" or its refered to as "Multi Plex wiring". It will check tank levels, control slides, AC, Heat, Lights etc.

The solar controler is separate and the ones I have seen so far on Thor Gas coaches are by the steps and say "Go Power" on them.

Sorry for the confusion.
