Generic recommendations for protecting electrical connections from the weather.

Recommendations via "togo"
  1. Clean with electrical cleaner, dry, and reconnect.
  2. Add a layer of good electrical tape, like Scotch 33+.
  3. Add a layer of rubber compound
    • Some of the guys like the rubber tape they use to splice AC motor leads with.
    • others like to use Coax-Seal, or Dux-Seal
    • both are putty-like compounds that don't harden.
  4. Finish it off with another wrap of good weatherproof electrical tape, like Scotch 33+.
Liquid Tape, Plasti-Dip, Krylon spray, or the 3M stuff that comes in a can with a brush.
Whatever you use, start with a layer of good quality electrical tape. It makes it much easier to undo the goop when you have to go back and repair the connection, or move the unit.
