With the last torrential rains here in South Texas, one of my Arduino Due did not survive. It was submerged under 4 feet of water and with him, the rest of the truck mounted system that was under his command. R.I.P. :'(

Hi,

Sorry to hear that.

Did you let it dry completely before trying to run it again?  I have had several electronic devices work again after getting wet as long as they were completely dry before running.
On the other hand, i had one fall in the washer (ha ha) and it died, but that was because it had a battery on board that kept some current flowing and that probably got to pins it was not supposed to be at.
Let it dry good, then try again.  Check under chips for wetness too.

Hello MrAI,

Thanks for worrying and thank you for your tips regarding revive my wet Arduino Due. Even though the Due was contained in a non-metallic enclosure, and this, in turn, was inside a metallic box, everything got fully wet (for hours). If you take a closer look at my picture you will notice nasty corrosion/sulphation. Most of all I regret the damaged Multitech IP modem (~%150). I hope my truck's insurance deductible will cover something. Regards,
