Signature Solar Panel

I've read most of the posts on solar panels
I suspect mine is not working
The Aladdin tells me 2.1 Vdc and 1.8 amp chg which us only 4 watts
Am I not understanding the Aladdin or is the panel faulty. Does it have a controller?

Steve you have a Solar Panel Controller in the basement over head on the curb side. It is a model RV-45D. Check your email for data on how to troubleshoot it. If the sun is on my panel I can read up to 18 volts.

Thanks Mike
Ill start there
Like most electrical stuff on this coach it hasn't worked
The mechanical side is perfect. A good service and the tech was very pleased
Replaced the belts on the gen set which must face been a recall or something as it required new pulleys different design
New front and back tvs new DVDs new traveller satellite dish new (used) Bose amp
And the bed on my side goes flat
