Choosing the Right Grease to Protect Your Electrical Connections

Question:

When using grease on electrical connections, should I use dielectric grease or conductive grease? Thanks, Jeff

Answer:

Hi Jeff,

Good question, since the ocean salinity levels are not as high here in the Pacific NorthWest, most boaters don’t bother with a protective layer on their connections, hence we have limited experience on this. I would suggest a conductive grease, especially if it’s in between the conductive parts of the circuit. - Jeff
