PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ORIGINAL GVS501 CIRCUIT BOARD IS NOW PROPRIETARY TO GREAT LAKES AND WOULD NEED TO BE PURCHASED FROM A DEALER. IF YOU ORDER THIS BOARD YOU WILL BE SENT P/N 54357-01. THE BOARD IS IDENTICAL; HOWEVER IT DOES NOT SUPPORT THE OPTIONAL LED PANEL, OTHER THEN THAT THE BOARD IS THE SAME IN EVERYWAY. ANOTHER OPTION IS TO SEND IN YOUR EXISTING CIRCUIT BOARD FOR REPAIR.
It is important that you do not order a circuit board based on looks, several boards look alike but have different software or chips. It is the chip that drives the board and gives it its unique functions. To correctly identify a circuit board the chip number should be used to identify it. It can be found on a white sticker near the center of the circuit board. Another number that is helpful in identifying a Balboa Water Group circuit board is the five digit number found on most boards (5****).
