Default Clarion XMD3-Not as advertised

Has anyone else had a bad experience with these? I just had a second one go bad in my Spectre in less than a month. Both due to moisture. Neither were exposed to anything more than a light rain getting caught out on the lake. This was a direct replacement for an XMA1 tape player that had been fine in the boat for years. Below is directly from the Clarion website.

XMD3ís Water-Resistant Faceplate Exceeds CFR 46 Watertight Standard Protected by a waterproof front cover built to exceed CFR watertight standards, Clarionís XMD3 can withstand a water stream from a 1-inch diameter hose at 10 feet for five minutes. This means that the unit can endure rain, splashes or wash downs.

The only problem that I have ever had with them was on the early units was the seal would stick the cover closed.
