I am re-installing my wind transducer and noticed that it might need some maintenance due to salty conditions. Any advice on type of maintenance I should perform?

Thanks,

Rotavecta Reinstallation

I re-installed only to find it did not work. Apparently it was damaged when dismasted and I need to change the transducer. Checked the Raymarine site and found that I could use the D240 replacement kit, but that covers only the cup and vane. What actually is broken is the receptacle where the integrated circuit resides.
Do you know if I can buy the transducer only, i.e. without the display?

Thanks,

Nothing beyond the good practice. Clean it, avoid water, use Isopropil alchool (or similar non water based contact cleaners). Lubricate the mechanical spinning axes with a dry chemical like Sailkote, and make sure it spins freely. If going aloft, take the time to inspect your VHF antena. What else ?
