Connection plugs on electronics What to use??

750 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  wpdesmarais
Boat has its 2nd Garmin fish finder due to corrosion on the female plug that goes into it.This has to be disconnected each launch due to the world we live in (theft).Does any one out there use a dielectric grease or any other prevenitive for this?Putting a cap on the pulg will only trap any moisture & salt that might be on it. TIAV for any suggestions.

Dielectric grease is one solution. Just don't overdue it.
The other is to clean the contacts every couple of trips with a spray of electronic contact cleaner followed by a light spritz of WD-40.

You do need to wipe off all the old dielectric and clean off the accumulated buildup every so often to work best.
