Sweet. Hook it up, you'll love it. Just be careful with the tiny two-wire connector that goes into the control box. On mine they slipped out of the black plug just recently, but that's because I was moving things around.

A little dab of silicone sealer ought to prevent that. I will check mine out when I get it today. Thanks for the heads up on a potential weak spot.

True, hindsight is always 20/20. I :D fixed it up with a temporary fixer-upper. I wouldn't call it a weak spot---I just happen to be dragging something and it caught onto it, and it got yanked out, totally my fault.

I heard that. ;) But before I tear mine up, is there a protective cover over the pressure sensitive switch? I haven't installed mine yet but the switch looks different than the pic on the fist page of the thread. I told my wife it looks like a cover that needs to be removed but didn't want to tear it up. :o

Not on mine. The button was exposed as shown in my pic. The only "cover" is the heavy marine grade heat shrink that covers the rear end of that board that is attached to the metal body.

I just called Dave Vogel and he said they switched to a different button and mine is the new style. No protective cap. I will post a pic in a while so you can see what I mean. Good thing I asked! :lol:

Interesting. So is that a flexible rubber membrane of sorts, with the button underneath it? or is that the actual button? Does it flex?
