Default CRC Di-electric Grease

I don't know how I've got along without this stuff. Well, that's not true, I've got along with repeated failures of my boat's wiring, connections and contacts due to corrosion. This stuff is the consistency of RTV silicone out of the tube and stays that way. You can smear it over a multipin connector and connect it up and never have to worry about it corroding. I had a search light switch that I've had to disassemble and clean every few months, not any more after I filled the inside with this grease. Same with my engine connections for tack, trim, etc. under the console where it gets damp. Anyone else use this stuff? It's expensive but worth it.

I use the CRC Corrosion Inhibiter. It's a spray that sets up a waxy coating that lasts for years.

I use dielectric grease on every connector I can get to, but have only used whatever brand I find at the auto store. If the CRC stuff is the consistency of RTV then it sounds like it is thicker than what I use and might stay in place better. The cheap stuff I use works great but does wear off after a couple of months...and if it gets wet it is real slippery (I guess from the silicone content). I'll have to try the CRC stuff.

I do use the CRC corrosion inhibitor, but not on wiring...part of winterization I take the cowling off and spray like heck all over the engine...like Richie says, that waxy coating lasts for a long time and every bolt on my motor looks brand new.

If you dont want to spend the money, any white lithium grease at the auto parts store will do just as good of a job. It's only a couple of bucks for a can full, enough to do all of our boats.
