Set Yearly Rain on Davis Vantage Vue
« on: January 03, 2019, 09:32:53 AM »
My VUE was working fine until January 1 2019.  I had the RAIN YEAR set to October, which is what I wanted.   It had accumulated 14.69" of rain during October, November and December.  However, now it shows 0.00" and the RAIN YEAR is reset to January.

I managed to reset the rain year to OCTOBER, but have not been able to figure out how to enter that 14.69" of accumulated rain for the year into the unit, it still says 0.00.  Funny, as I was fumbling around trying to set it I did see at one point the 14.69 value scroll by.

How do I set the yearly rain accumulation to 14.69?  I downloaded and read the owner manual but the procedure given there is unclear and/or does not work for me.

Help would be appreciated.

I managed to set the yearly rain value using the WeatherSnoop software.  Never did figure out how to do it with the VUE's console.  What a horrible UI that thing has.

Have you ever read the manual? All explained in there.

It does work so not quite sure what you are doing wrong, hence perhaps reading the manual .... again is my best advice
