From what I was able to pick out after a five minute search on "solar panel glass repair", is that you should be able to fill the crack using a glass repair kit (basically non-conductive epoxy) as long as it is not too big a piece of glass that is missing. You may be able to replace the broken piece of glass using non-conductive epoxy and a scab of glass to help fill the void. If the cells themself are cracked all the way through some seem to have had success putting them back together using a conductive epoxy.
Water getting in may lead to further glass loss and not being familiar how your panel is made or mounted I can only guess that there could be a chance of it leaking into the roof of your coach. I would seal it up in short order myself.
You may be using them more than you know if they are quietly behing the scenes keeping your batteries charge up for you.
