It's an extremely reliable box and other than the rain issue, meteohub 
has been fixing bugs and problems, such as

I've been playing around with it for a few days, and finally got around to working with the Meteohub tonight.  Unfortunately, I managed to break 2 U-bolts when attempting to readjust the anemometer and ISS on its mount, so the station was forced indoors when working with meteohub.

The 1-hr and 24-hr precip fields remained 0.00.  I've noticed this with a handful of other local CWOP stations as well.  As you may know, one of the many shortcomings of MADIS is that they only accept 24hr and 1hr precipitation.
