While the Vansco PDM (Power Distribution Module) and the VM2820 are very reliable, like any electronic part you could have a problem with them. When WRV went out of business Vansco did provide us with Tech Support and sales. I did talk to Norm Benes of Parker Hannifin Canada. He was one who sold these to WRV. Vansco is now Parker Hannifin Canada. He told me they sourced this business out of the company.They selected a local company in case they needed assistance from Parker. The company that handles all of the VMM2820 and PDM is called JCA Electronics. They are the only one that handles the parts and there are no dealers in the US.
The PDM is what they call a dumb module and requires no programming. You just replace the unit.
If the VMM 2820 goes bad, you have to send the good one back to extract the code and reprogram a new one.
I guess we always look on the internet to see what we could find. If you could find a PDM that would be ok. I don't think you would want to buy VM2820 unless you have some way to reprogram it.

They don't take credit cards and you need to wire funds. You need to pay all shipping expenses and brokerage to and from Canada. You could use UPS or Fed EX to broker and ship it.
Just thought I would pass this information along
