Question Raymarine depth finder condensation

I have a depth finder that gets condensation in it when I turn it on in the morning and won't be cleared out until it gets fairly warm during the afternoon. I have had a couple other depth finders that did this, and I have just been dealing with it. Any quick fixes or any of you guys contact any professionals and aske their opinion or have fixed this problem in other ways ?

P.S. I did a search, and didn't find hardly any info on this, so you guys out there that like to say, "search for the posts", well........I already did. So there.

If you don't want to gob silicone all over it I suggest you contact Raymarine about it. I don't think there are ways to fix it. It's probably the gasket inside or maybe the buttons. I guess you could make sure all of the screws are tight...

Thanks VanW. You know, you figure that this is a fairly common problem for this product. There oughta be tons of people and info on this subject. You're probably right though. Good idea to contact Raymarine.

For the time being I would open the case and completely dry it out. You might have some residual moisture inside the case.
