Moisture in Pressure Gauge

Anyone else have the seal on the gauge fail allowing moisture to build up inside the glass? Called CC & they are sending out a replacement at no charge.

Aye John, did you change it yet?
Was it pretty painless?
I've never had to change a gauge yet, crossing my fingers...
