Anyone ever have one under water? Advice? Effin boat dealer left the plug in. Three inches of rain in two hours yesterday. They were wet for about an hour I'd say.

Yep. Put it in a rubbermaid and cover it with rice unless you can find desiccant pellets. They work a lot better but large quantities are hard to come by

As long as weren't powered when got wee should be ok, just let it dry out real good as said, have seen lots of wet or flooded electrical components and still worked after dried out...

Have also put stuff in oven with door open set on real low 125 degree range and worked also

Sorry to say, powered on or not they likely had power to them via the batteries. Ours never worked again after being wet and not in use due to a similar situation.

I wonder if you could buy a desiccant bag from a parts store and cut it open and use all the insides? It's a part for an air conditioner on cars and are usually cheap

Silica gel can also be had from craft stores for drying flowers or from Walmart in the cat litter section. Cat litter kind is probably cheapest. It can be re-dried in an oven and reused.

Or along the same lines they sell canisters of it for gun safes that can also be re-dried in the oven.
