All boards in the AP mounts are already conformal coated. Do not add more willy nilly since you can mess up the connector pins!

Hi Steve

I had to deal with this recently. One of the things I added was conformal coating to the circuit boards/electronics. It shields the boards from corrosion

Yes that was my understanding. Good suggestion on the stainless, thanks, I do see some signs of corrosion on the small level on the baseplate; not too worrying as it’s not core to the mount’s function, looks like it might be plated steel.
