rb, sorry, I missed this somehow.

The company has various different types of connectors. Their website sucks at providing info however. I've used the "Posi-Tite" ones only once, to install our spare 12v water pump in the bilge when the primary one burned out on a long trip. I used dielectric grease on the wires. It's their "water tite" connector. Worked fine. I don't know if I'd rely on them long term, but for the emergency repair...

The others (Posi-Lock & Posi-Twist) are the ones I mentioned I used on really tiny gauge wire and only in dry area like behind the dash in the cabin. I only used them for low voltage wires like when installing my Garmin system for some of the secondary connections like AIS etc. Again, they have worked fine for 10 yrs.
