Thanks Raz for the waterproofing suggestion. I went out tonight and did every one that I could find. Better safe than sorry!

You can be sloppy with that stuff too Thom, though after years of use, I'm pretty good now!

I usually do two coats. You'll find it naturally wicks into openings (i.e., the ends of the crimped connections) the first time. I do two coats just because of my compulsive nature.

On a used trailer do you think maybe corrosion has already started. I would have cut off those connectors and replaced them with new ones that have heat shrink on them

Parkliner fixed!

Frank...i used a similar product to waterproof all the electronics on our RC Rock Crawlers, i just didn't think of doing the same on the PL. Thanks for the polite Whack on the side of my head to do a good thing for the TT.

No problem Thom. It was one of the first things I looked at. I has asked ParkLiner to do something with them when it was down for the battery movement (and a number of other things that did not get done), but Chandler was not concerned with it at all.

Also, I have found over time that heat shrink tubing will dry out and allow moisture in. I've been using liquid e tape for maybe 20 years, and it does not degrade like heat shrink tubing will. I started using it on my boat restorations years ago, and now use it all the time on about any 12V connections.

Frank, I know you told me about this earlier, do you recommend a particular brand of e tape or are they all just about the same?
Thanks
Pat

The first one I ever used was Star Brite Pat, but my experience is that they are all about the same. I look for Star Brite when I run out, but can't always find it. Amazon carries it: http://www.amazon.com/Star-brite-Liq.../dp/B0000AXNOD

Take care and give those pups a scratch on the head for me would ya?

Sounds good Pat. At least with mine, there were two on the right side and 5 or 6 maybe on the left. They're not particularly easy to get to. It helps if the wheels are off when you're doing it.

I hope you and those 4 legged kids are doing great!

Frank
