Hi Guy's, I recently got a new sounder and would like to know what is safe to use on the plugs to help prevent any corrosion problems in the years to come. I have yamalube grease, reelx and inox mx3 in my arsenal for reel maintenance. Also I am in a small open boat so the sounder gets a fair bit of spray on rough days. What's the best way to clean off the head unit when it's covered in dried sea spray.
Cheers Scott

Dielectric grease is what I use. Havenít had any corrosion issues on any of my electronics.  Just goop it in to the connection and plug it in and twist it locked.  Done, forget about it wonít be a problem.

From past experiences with electronics and vehicle electrics I broadly agree with David - silicone based grease.

If you want a detailed article on various greases/protectors:

This .
My ski boat was rebuilt/reassembled in 1983 . We used dielectric grease on all the dissimilar metals where ever they came in contact with each other as well as all electrical connections , I have had zero problems .
This is a boat that has many aluminum components bolted together with stainless fasteners , also cast iron to aluminum with stainless and I have no fastener failures .Kind of hard to believe really .
David's right , Dielectric works.....

I do agree with using dielectric grease,  I hose the display with Wd-40 and wipe clean.  Cover it to keep the direct spray and rain out when you can.   Butt let it breath from the bottom somehow.

I have used De-Ox and No Corrode dielectric grease but prefer De-Ox because it is not dark grey.
