What product(s) do you recommend to ensure a great electrical contact and make those connections corrosion free? I am looking at battery connections, light bulb bases (like the ones you will find in trailer lights) and wire crimps. I have come across dielectric grease, Lanocote, Noalox, Penetrox, anti-corrosive zinc paste and something with silver particles suspended in a kind of grease.

Hi Jeff, I met you the other day while you were performing an Electrical Audit on a friend’s boat. You mentioned a product that allows you to direct excess power from one battery to another when charging. What is this called and how hard is it to install. – Rob
