Re: Trouble-shooting MHU B&G213
Smart move. For the cost of the repair, replace it with something better J I’ve been suckered into two expensive B&G repairs. No more!
I have a good friend who also went this route and he loves the update.

After all the trouble and expense of trying to fix two B&G MHUs, I finally solved this problem by replacing it with an Airmar 220WX weather station.

I had almost the same problem and did all that you did and more, eventually replacing every removable component on the 213MHU.
I went up and down the mast 10-12 times.
Finally, I replaced the 213MHU Mount and wire (25m). The wire is permanently fixed to the mount. Thankfully Dan Carlson helped, or actually did a lot of that replacement, but being the one up the mast.
Good luck, the 213MHU is still the best and longest-lasting MHU you can buy...all of the others are "throw-away" units, meaning when they fail you throw them away.
