This is what most of my customers are using to clean power cords and fenders.
Marinestrip -Products-


It was originally sold as a safe varnish remover. Then they figured out that it's great at cleaning vinyl without stripping the plasticizers. By the way, it's a lousy varnish remover.


Don't use Acetone! It works great but removes the plasticizers and will leave your cables a sticky mess.

Marine Strip works great. Just change your rags often and cost the cord with 303 after you use it.

But I'd start by trying Magic Erasers and a good spray cleaner.

I think they should make them black to begin with!

They do. You get them at an RV dealer I believe.

Greetings,
Mr. hm. "...to remove black mold from the cord? " Some time ago a TF member, his name escapes me at the moment, suggested orange citrus type (GoJo) hand cleaner. I've used it on power cords and it does a great job of removing the dirt.

Thanks everyone. I have a crap-load of 303 and I will coat it when I deploy the cable. Will also put a glob of dielectric grease on the terminals too. I was going to use anti corrosive spray, but I think the stuff I have is the less conductive brown goo spray from CRC and I don't think that is the right product.

Thanks again Y'all!

I agree, there must be two types.

No-ox type A is what is the old mainstay in battery plant maintenance, and it is not conductive.

Don't ignore your plugs like I did recently. Some minor corrosion caused my ac connection to fail. Keep those connections clean and lubed!Click image for larger version
