Is It Ok To Use Dielectric Grease on Electrical Engine Connections?
I have applied a (small) amount of dielectric grease on all of my wire connectors on my engine and in the helm but a friend told me the dielectric grease is not good to use because it does not coduct electricity and could acually cut down on the flow of electric in the connectors. He said it's used after the connectors have been mated together not before they are mated together. Anybody else use the Dielectric grease without any problems? I use my boat in slat water so I wanted to have some extra protection of all my electrical connections. Will I be ok using it? Thanks for any info...

I might be wrong but that sounds like a load of crap. I use it on all of my electrical connections in my car and ski havnt had any problems yet. I use it on all plugs and wire in my cars to. I've had coils corrode on me left and right little dielectric grease problem solved.

I buy silicone spray by the case and spray the entire engine, all hoses and rubber pieces, jet pump, impeller, shaft, reverse bucket and wiring liberally after I've rinsed the salt water off (after every use), the silicone spray will also help the rubber seals around the storage compartments last longer. It's all I use and I've never had corrosion issues, besides the sacrificial zinc anodes which are intended to corrode.
One can is usually good for 2-3 outings.

Absolutly use it...everything I unplug I put d-grease on it before plugging back in. The only exception is the mem connections. They are so sensitive to resistance that d-grease is not recommended on those plugs. I also installed a 12 volt outlet for gps and depth finder and I use d-grease on all those fittings and couplings.
