      I was experiencing many errors being logged from the thermo/hydro unit
      and also a large rain error on a day wth no rain. I followed your
      advice from an earlier post and bought 100' of shielded 4 wire cable.
      I replaced the cable from the rain sensor to the outside unit and from
      the thermo/hydro unit to the console. Instant corection, no more
      errors.
      I found my cable here:

      I will eventually buy another roll and rewire my wind sensor, which is
      a more difficult job as it sits atop a 32' mast. For now I don't see
      any errors from it, I think your software tweaks are taking care of
      any that occurr.

      If anyone needs to make this repair, I suggest cutting the supplied
      cable about 12" from the connector or sensor, stripping it back and
      soldering the 4 wires to the new cable ( being sure to keep the colors
      matched) and then covering each splice with heat shrink tubing and
      then
      the whole splice with larger heat shrink. Makes a very proffesional
      looking repair and so far seems weatherproof.
      I am not a tech so working with the cable made more sense than trying
      to solder the actual sensor.

      Too bad La Crosse won't supply better connecting cables, even if they
      had to raise the price some.
