Raymarine Radar Rd218 Problem

Recommended Posts


I have since 2007 a Raymarine Radome Pathfinder RD218 installed on my sailing boat linked to Chart Plotter E80. The scanner shows increasingly intermittent difficulties to rotate; scanner icon rotates on E80 display for some 20 secs and stops. No radar signals shown on map, or a few very coarse pixeled radar signs shown on the map until scanner(icon) stops rotating.

Thus I think it is possible or likely that the min. 15 years old rubber belt is not doing its job anymore [or the bearing?]. Rubber so old gets stiff and less elastic. So my unverified guess.

Would you know where to purchase original replacement belts for this Raymarine Pathfinder Radome RD218 or know more about those problems. 

Appreciate your tips.
