rubber seal for autohelm
« on: December 25, 2019, 12:24:19 PM »

I am looking for the rubber seal between the power supply and the motor on my Autohelm St4000+ .  It is the seal that covers the plug on the small motor that protects the electrical connection from the elements.  I have a small crack and would like to replace it. 
Does anyone know the part # or where I might purchase it.  I have not contacted ray marine yet but will.
Thanks for any help.

Mine didn't last a week.  I use Rescue Tape, think Walmart sells it, or Harbor Freight sells a knockoff.

Same story with mine. 3M electrical splicing tape readily available at Lowes or Home Depot does the trick and lasts forever.
