I prefer using grease. Like wheel bearing grease. The RTV or silicon caulk doesn't seem to do as well - at least it didn't years ago when I tried using both to seal a video connection out in the weather. I used tape, not heat shrink, and was attempting to weather proof the BNC connector joint. The grease joint was the only one that survive more than a year. I have been using grease to seal power and signal connections from air and water for quite a few years now, and I haven't found anything that works better. A soldered western-union type joint with grease and shrink tube is my favorite. Kinda slow, though. _______________________________________ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives http://www.okiebenz.com/archive/ To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://mail.okiebenz.com/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_okiebenz.com
