Wow you have had it for 9 years, that's incredible. In all honesty I did the damage to it myself. When self supporting I used to just throw it in the bow not in a dry bag. JB's and sand don't mix and I'm pretty confident that's what destroyed it.
I'll most likely back charge JB for the 4 min it took me to install it. How dare they not send out a technician to take care of that for me.
The good news is they saved me $80 as the replacement JB I bought will be returned to REI since it's been less than a year
