Stereo died today...

I washed the RG this morning, as usual avoided getting a lot of water on the deck. After I dried it off, I changed out the CD and after that, it was dead. I checked the fuse and it's good, so not sure what to do next. It's only 2 months old and under warranty, but I figured I could find the prob.
Thoughts?

Sucks to say but usually letting it sit and air over night and the bastard will work fine in the morning. My experience at least. Hope yours does too.

i feel your pain...

I have never been comfy with putting water on the radio so I bought a 3 pack of shower caps for 2 bucks. One goes on the radio, one on my KN air filter and 1 on the ECM (I take the seat off).

Hopefully letting it sit will work, if not warranty that sucker!

I washed mine a couple of weeks ago and the radio was acting up so I shut it off for a few hours. Now I only have 1 speaker working, good thing it's still under warranty .
