A couple of thoughts:
How are you "connecting your multimeter to the solar terminals on the regulator" and reading Amps?
If you are getting 8 Amps @ 19V out of 2x 100W panels, then both panels are working.
What loads are on the system. If you are getting 8 Amps from the panels but only 3 Amps into the batteries
, that would suggest that you have 5 Amps feeding other loads. Fridge? Instruments? Radio
