    rrfpr and IC condensation

    After damaging the reference line brass fitting, I disassembled the Rrfpr to remove the threaded portion of the fitting.

    I was shocked to see how corroded the spring was.

    Looks like a Riva unit. Can all the internal parts be found an purchased for replacement? Who sells these parts?

    Its a Riva rrfpr, and I use raising rate. This is on fresh water ski.....A replacement spring should be stainless steel.

    My point was riva generally rebrands many of the items they sell.

    Sellers who rebrand also have the options to put in the shitties internal parts on the market for the bigger margin.
    My previous riva rrfpr went in the garbage can mixed with dog shit.

    Gents, I didn't post this to bash Riva. This rrfpr was purchased new 2010, used on my 2008 TX and now on my 2013 TX. It has work flawlessly for 9 years. I am simply suggesting the spring needs to be updated for marine use.
