Factory Solar Not Working?

Just purchased 2000 Adventurer & it appears the solar panel is not working.
At any rate the red indicator light is not on.
Could it be the lite is just burned out or?
How can we test this to see if its actually working?
If not working, is it a simple fix?

When we bought our 98 DSDP 2+ yrs ago the original 5w solar panel wasn't lighting up the dash mounted LED charge indicator. With my multimeter, I determined that it was putting out voltage anymore. So I replaced it w/a 15w panel. So far, so good.

We hope this helps

Our "light" quit working after a year of ownership, and Winnie replaced the controller (the elec. gizmo that lights".
