Solar panel was working great then after temperature and a little snow it now has a charging fault(triangle with a lightning bolt) and is draining my battery not charging it. Couldn’t find any answers to this problem. Have plugged and unplugged and all the suggestions but to no avail. I am familiar with solar panels and it’s pretty straight forward technology. What have you guys done , as I think there is a voltage drop through the cord. The cord is the problem in my mind.

@Trapperhayes  The issue is with the battery not the panel.  You cannot charge lithium ion batteries below ~32F.  Solar panels actually work a bit better when they are cold though.
