I just received 6 Renogy Solar Panel Kit 320W 24V Monocrystalline, the boxes showed damage in shipping, a footprint on one, and a visible damage spot on the white side of one panel (Husband didn’t check other side to see if glass was busted, I’m in bed with a broken foot) how hardy are they? How do I check?​

I have a broken 430W QC panel, 475W QC panel and a 100W Amazon panel. They are still working over a year later, probably about 75% capacity. The distributors including Amazon usually don't want them back. I always order extra, so most of the time I just get credit. You'll want to either return them or get your money back. I hope you bought extra.

Put that in the sun for couple of hours and then measure the voltage. Should be around 37V for Model 320D. I have 6 of that model.
