Maxxair blinking red light

I have 2 Maxxair fans, one in the bathroom, one in the garage of my 2017 Work and Play. Today the one in the bathroom has a light that is blinking red and the remote will not make anything work. The same remote works fine with the garage fan.

I was able to get the red light to turn off by pushing the raised button near it, but that didn't change it as far as working. If I use the remote, then the light starts blinking again.

There is a vent cover over the fan that has been on for almost 3 years. T-storm early this morning, heavy rain for a while, but nothing that hasn't happened many times over the years.

Is this a repair or replace situation? Heading towards Missoula, MT tomorrow - anybody have a favorite RV repair place near there?

Thanks.

Likely... Hand crank it open. Dry the rain sensor either manually or wait for it to evaporate.

Thanks for your reply....guess it self medicated, noticed the light was no longer blinking, so tried the remote and, bingo, the vent opened and worked as it should. First time that's happened, so now I'll know not to get excited about it. Must have been the sensor. All is well in Montana.

Thanks again.
