Plastic materials used in my last two outdoor units had catastrophic failures due to solar radiation. No high winds, impact,etc. Today, wind vane snapped off @ 2mph! What the hell?

Hi Doug, how long have you had this unit?  The sensor is covered by a 1-yr warranty, however the wind cups and wind vane are not covered as they can be damaged by circumstances outside our control such as being struck by birds, hail, etc.  You can order a replacement wind vane paddle for $5 from the following link:
