It rained yesterday while we were touring on the Mainely tour and now my speedometer has moisture inside on the glass face. How do I remove this?

Hair dryer.

Jerry, a hair dryer will vaporise the condensation and it will appear to have disappeared. However, there is a good chance that it will re-condense somewhere else in the case, and that can have disastrous consequences with potmetal innards over time.
If you can get the bezel and glass off and wipe up the moisture, that will give a better result long term.The hairdryer used when the glass is off will allow the vapours to escape the housing as well.

Hope this helps,
Allan from down under.

Take it off and put it in a bag of dry rice for a week.

Perhaps Allan but I've yet to find an airtight speedometer head ! And yes, I live in Western Washington so I do know a little about moisture too !

Steve, I envy the way all the rain you get makes the trees grow in you neck of the woods. Here our climate is like central California, with no mountains to make it rain as the Sierras/Rockies do. Just once I had enough rain to saturate my True-fire and have to trailer my car home.

Allan from dry down under.
