Do I need to do anything special to the C3/C6P cables and connectors?
The bulkhead connectors for the C3/C6P require maintenance and lubrication to ensure that they don’t degrade and cause the unit to take on water (leak).  Mating surfaces of the connectors need to be lubricated on a regular basis with 3M™ Silicone Lubricant Spray, Loctite 8021 spray or equivalent.  
You should avoid using silicone grease.  
DO NOT USE WD-40 - it will destroy the connectors.
Other things to remember:
•    Avoid nicks and cuts around contacts as these are the sealing surfaces.
•    Neoprene can be seriously degraded if exposed to direct sunlight or high ozone levels for extended periods of time.
•    Avoid sharp bends at cable entry to connector.
If you have any questions regarding maintenance of connectors, please contact Technical Support
