The two Raymarine E120 displays on my 21 foot Grady White have accumulated moisture in them. They are pedestal mounted. Is this normal, and what can be done about it?

Hi Tom,

This is not normal. The first thing you may want to try is turn the E120 backlight to a maximum. This will sometimes clear out all the moisture within the unit. If this doesn't work, you'll probably want to get the unit serviced at a certified Raymarine center. On the prevention side, make sure the unused connection points at the end of the unit have the caps on. Those connection points should be splash-proof, but it is advisable to keep the caps on.
