Sim NewB faulty Umbi reservoir

Has anyone had issues with their Sim NewB having problems with fluid overflowing inside the trunk cavity with boluses of fluids in the UVC even with the drain bag connected? We have had issues with both our manikin as well as the loaner we have used. This seems to be a flaw or defect in manufacturing so I am trying to research and see if anyone else has had this issue.

The problem this creates, is then the electronics inside get corroded and the manikin malfunctions or doesn't work at all!

What did Laerdal say about the issue? My experience with issues related to 3G is that they are very proactive in fixing defects. They did a replacement of the whole leg/compressor/ wireless system for every 3G...a major defect that had to cost them a fortune.

Are you on the INACSL listserv? If so, you might pose this question there as well!
