Waterproofing electrical plugs/ connections.

Recommended Posts

Following on from my sick trs thread, whilst investigating the problem I found a couple of connectors where I could see moisture had gotten in.

What is the best method for keeping water out of these connectors? I've heard of people using vaseline and dielectric grease.

There are some good spray products about like X20 that work for long enough to do a trial.  If you want to waterproof things where it is possible to do so a shrink wrap is the best way to go.

Cheers Chris, I haven't had a problem getting through a trial it's more to do with ensuring moisture doesnt get through to the pins of the plugs on things like the cdi and sit there coroding the pins

That's exactly what dielectric grease is for. 

I think I'll be checking mine connections and greasing them soon.
