My wife and I own a travel trailer. Last summer we pulled into a campground in the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. When we arrived at our camp site it began to down pour. It rained heavily for a few of hours. Eventually, rain or no rain I had to get out of my truck and go to the rest room. On my way back to the truck I realized I had lost my hearing aid. While going to the rest room I recalled removing my glasses to wipe the rain off the lenses and was unaware the hearing aid fell off to the ground and into about three inches of water. After the rain stopped I went out to look for it not believing I would ever find it and didn’t. So the next day I told my wife I would give it another try. So I retraced my steps and low and behold I looked down between my shoes and saw it embedded in the mud. I took it into the camper immediately, removed the battery and tried drying it out with a hair dryer. It was totally drenched with muddy water seeping out of it. I let it sit for a full twenty four hours before replacing the battery to give it a try. I turned it on but it made and awful noise, so I turned it off again took out the battery and waited until the next morning to try it. When I reinstalled the battery and turned it on it was if a small miracle happened. It worked as well as when I first purchased it. I was totally shocked and couldn't believe it. It has been working ever since. Thank you MDHearingAid for great engineering.
