What are you guys doing to protect your radio from getting wet, i.e. when washing the car ??

I have a kenwood tm-271a that I got to use 1 time then it got wet while washing the car, the rest is a long story....not sure it's going to get fixed.

Now I got a new vertex from Rugged. I guess i could pull it out every time i wash it, but that's kind of a pain.

J-Strong Roof. And it has a plastic sealable cover over the radio.

I mounted all mine to the underside of the roof, put plastic bag over them when I wash it but really never gets wet under there. I mounted it all under there in case I would get in a nasty rain storm while riding so far no problems

What's with the washing these things? :nuts: You ride in the sand. Just get yourself a good blower and wipe some things down... :razz:

Just kidding, I'm a clean freak too myself. Put the plastic or just be very careful with the H20.

The VX2200 is a pretty bullet proof radio; However, it is not waterproof so never put water directly on it. Most people put freezer bags over them with some tape.....works like a charm!

It's not like I intentionally sprayed the radio down. Lol.

It just happened to get wet, small amount of water got into faceplate,cracked it open to dry & well, it all went downhill from there.

I'm just finishing up my vertex install. I'll get pics up when it's done.
