    so something strange happened and basically the area around my tank got wet. Anyways the connection to the controller was also wet and basically just got fried.. I was wondering what the protocol / what to really do. I have an mp40wqd and I don’t see any damage to the top of the chip jsut the bottom half. I’ll attach pics... can I just buy a replacement controller box? Can I maybe even save some $ and get one without the quiet drive thing and just add the one I have?

    A call to Echotech will answer that question.
    Perhaps you can find a used one.

    you should be able to order or find another driver, youll just have to move over the rf module from yours to the new one to retain the wifi pairing capabilities
