I was getting frustrated that the wired remotes didn't work in a flawless manner so I did some investigation and discovered that the issue causing intermittent lack of connection is interference from the in-boat speaker wires. If the Aeware remote wire was shielded this wouldn't be an issue but it is an issue especially at high volumes with more current in the speaker wires which run adjacent to it. I have determined how I will solve this problem but its good to know the issue. Hopefully, this piece of information is useful to others.

Not sure yet. Either reroute the Remote Wire or Replace it with a Shielded Wire.

I would appreciate it if you could try and duplicate my results to see if this is truly the problem.

Thanks for the additional info. What path does the remote wire take from the head unit to the helm remote? Does it go around the bow?
At this point, I have replaced all the stock speaker wires so I am not sure if the remote wire is running adjacent to any speaker wires. I may re run the remote wire thru the ski locker and see if that fixes the issue.
I did add a second JL Audio line driver this week and noticed that all of a sudden, the remote started working again. Not sure why that is as I didn't do anything that would affect the remote (or at least don't think it would affect the remote).
I will do some testing and see what I find out.

Mine worked fine until today. the only thing that I changed was I installed the Kicker ZXM-RLC in place of my PAC that I had controlling the volume level of my towers. Now neither the helm nor the transom remotes work hardly at all. Every once in a while it would maybe bring the volume up one or two notches but by the end of the day neither were working at all. I checked the wire while on the water and the connection was fine. I have no idea why it won't work now...pretty frustrating to say the LEAST! Pretty much went the whole day without tunes.2011 Mobius LSV 325HP EFI
