Trouble with SeaTalk connectors

RE: Trouble with SeaTalk connectors
Hi tyed,

Yes the STng connectors are very tight in their sockets to make them weatherproof and this makes them difficult to disconnect as the O-ring material ages and becomes a little less flexible.

Never lubricate rubber or plastic with any petroleum based products as they will damage the material. Only use Lanolin or Silicon grease making sure there are no solvents in it that are petroleum related. A light smear of Lanolin on the STng connector will make it easier to extract and also reduce the chance of pin corrosion.

Happy boating

Kind regards
