I have read a lot of posts where corrosion in the various cabling connections has been mentioned. Given the possibility of heavy moisture accumulation on the equipment from dew, what is the conventional wisdom on using dielectric grease on the connections on the mounts; specifically for the motors and keypad, and (if used), the RigRunner connections. This material is widely used on the various electrical plugs under the hood of your car, and it seems to be pretty effective. Any specific recommendations from the A-P folks or other forum members would be appreciated.
