Kisan CharGuard temperature

Does anyone have this and if so how accurate is the temperature. I have been putting up with this being 10 degrees off all summer and now it flashes the ICE warning when it is ten degrees from freezing. Talked with the tech at Kisan and he explained how to set the pot to get it corrected and I got it all set up and thought I had it and two days later and it is 6 degrees off again. I am tempted to purchase another sending unit from Kisan but wanted to know if anyone had a good one before I went through the expense.

I've also got one. It varies from the bike readings but I can't find a pattern to the difference. Perhaps it is a bit more sensitive to micro climates. I'm interested in what you learned about setting it.

I learned that the pot is very small and VERY sensitive. I got out my fluke temp probe and started adjusting a little at a time until I had it within 1 degree and watched it for a couple of hours and it seamed to be stable put a drop of rtv on the pot and let it setup over night still seamed to be about 1-2 degrees put the cover back on and the next day seamed to be within 1-3 degrees of temp then checked it yesterday and it was 7-8 degrees off. So today I called Andy at Kisan and he said send it in and they would recalibrate it or replace it so that is where it is headed.
