Re: Crimping versus Soldering

I have added dipping the end of the wire into dielectric (silicon) grease or squeezing a small amount into each end of the crimp / splice; on the notion that it keeps water and corrosion out as a secondary defense; in addition to the other good ideas before this. It's easy and quick-may do nothing more than make me feel better?
