transom stereo remote fail
After turning on my radio, it kept turning the volume up to Max by it self. A savvy friend traced it to the rear remote which was full of water and causing the stereo to turn it self up.

I have only used this (used) boat 3 times and this remote is full of water and failed. Has anyone ever had this happen and whats the best way to fix/replace?

You can buy a new remote on ebay. Search for clarion marine remote. Count the number of pins in the plug from the old remote. If its 6 then you need the cmrc2-bss remote, if its 8 then you need the MW2 remote.

Remove the old one by loosening the bracket behind it. The cable from the remote to the stereo is most likely fine. Just plug the new one into the existing cable.

My 2010
X-15 transom remote stops working too. Not sure what caused it. It will occasionally stop working after a long day on the lake. But after it dries out it works done!

When a remote control is mounted lower on the transom, as you come to an abrupt stop the remote may be washed or even submerged for a moment due to the backwash with an element of pressure. Also, remote controls have no tolerance for any degree of pressure wash.

I opted out of this feature on my boat this year, just because I thought this could happen. Electronics hate water.
