Do you guys put anything on your GPS/fish finder connectors? I have to take mine off the boat everytime I park it and I was just wondering what I can put on my connectors to protect them and keep them clean. Dielectric grease?

Dielectric grease?

I spray a little crc or wd on the connections in the beginning of the season and at the end. No issues ever with the connections in all my boating years. I use the dielectric grease only for when I replace bulbs and fuses and such!

Make sure they're clean before applying. I try to hit them when a unit's first installed.
