Protecting Furuno equipment in the off season

General

Question

​What precautions should I take in order to protect my Furuno equipment in the off season?

Solution

​It is suggested that the electrical connectors be protected against moisture ingress. This can be done by spraying a small amount of electrical grade anti-corrosive product into and around the pins of the external connectors on the display and where the cable connects inside the scanner antenna. This will assist in protecting against harsh environmental conditions. If the cables are disconnected, use the same procedure and cover the connectors with plastic bags for added protection. Make sure to label the connectors to prevent accidental connection to the wrong displays (example: the FCV582L fish finder and 1712 radar both have 10-pin connectors, they are NOT interchangeable).
