    Dielectric grease on electrical fittings?

    Hey GH,

    I have read a few instances of people coating all electrical fittings in Dielectric grease for corrosion protection and insulation.

    Is this a common suggestion of people 'in the know'? Or Something that should be avoided?

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    Tyler

    Tyler, I use dielectric on the connectors as well...I think its a good practice..It won't hurt anything but to protect from salt-air corrosion or even salt-water...

    Just make sure you do not put it inside the female pins.

    So you just apply the lube to your male parts and shove it into the female parts?

    Is this strictly an innuendo based comment, or should the grease really not be applied to female connectors?

    terminal inside connector.

    you dont want to put an insulator into a spot you want to be conductive

    is there a single connector that is a problem? What connector is it?
