water temp/depth gauge

The water temp and depth gauge on my 2008 VDIG have both gone out. A friend said they are both controlled by the same transducer or triducer.

Is this a common part that can be replaced easily? Anyone know what the part is?

Sorry if this is a repeat, I saw some old posts but nothing current. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

I had the same problem on my '08 Prostar w/ VDIG this year. I had to replace the triducer. Very easy job, took about 5 minutes, and was covered by my extended warranty. My dealer mailed it to me and I installed it before we went out for the day. I haven't mailed the defective one back yet. I'll take a picture of the part and the box with the part # on it for you tonight.
