Fusion stereo mount

I had a Fusion stereo installed on my Egret by the factory.  I trusted that they would get everything correct.  The wire remote sits on the console at an angle of about 20 degrees.  After two and a half years the remote filled up with water and would not work anymore.  I sent the remote in to Fusion for the three year warranty.  They sent me a replacement at no charge so I think their customer service is great.  With the new remote came installation instructions that clearly called for the remote to be at 45 degrees or more.  The remote filled with water because Egret did not install it properly.  I am working on a small box addition to the console so the remote can be mounted close to vertical as required by the installation instructions.  As an ongoing theme, Egret will utilize components outside of the intended use and not follow the manufacturer’s directions.
