Solar won't switch to Day

Just got trailer and out on first trip and the solar panels are not changing battery and the control panel only shows the moon symbol. The sun symbol will not come up even in full sunlight. Panels are clean. Is there anything I can try before I call dealership?

Had similar problem when we first got our unit. Found the problem to be the wires going into the controller mounted in the wall. The wires were not properly tightened from factory. Pull the controller out of in the wall and check to make sure the wires are tight.

I pulled it off and looking at the the panel there is is no neg wire connecting to the control panel. There is only the Pos and Neg from battery and the Pos from the panel. No neg from panel. The wire diagram in booklet shows there should be one

So your neg wire fell off.
No voltage from the panels means the controller thinks it's nighttime!
Find the wire.
