I moved to a new house about 5 months ago and my Tempest was packed up until this weekend, when I unpacked it to finally put it back up. Interesting weather is starting to spin up in the South Eastern US, so figured it was time.
I’m not sure what happened, but when I pulled the Tempest out, the top dome has separated and is skewed slightly to one side.
How sensitive are the Light, UV and Wind sensors in the dome to moisture? Rain will certainly get in there, so I’m wondering how this can be fixed. Unless others have seen a pattern of this happening over time, I’m not going to try to make a warranty claim, but also I don’t think I can buy just a replacement Tempest either. Could I seal it up with some silicon sealant? I’ve got the station running on my desk right now and the sensors appear to be functioning ok.
I realize this might not be something people here can answer, but I thought I’d ask before opening a ticket with support.
