Please advise! And how do you blow those out? I've never done this before and never had a problem in 11 years!
Hopefully it's closer to $300 than $400. You can swap it yourself; just a few electrical plugs and a couple of screws.
Not a good design in my opinion...water pressure mixing with an electrical component. I think to "winterize" you would just disconnect your pitot tube lines and let any water drain out of the box and blow out your tubes. After this happened to mine a few years ago I just left the pitot lines disconnected since I use PerfectPass for accurate speed anyway.
