Do I need to do anything special to the C6 cables and connectors?
The bulkhead connectors for the C6 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.
