"Anyone try using dialectric paste on crimp on terminals? "
Yup. SOP for me these days. I figure there's no way it can hurt and it ensures zero oxidation in there. Zero space for water. Gotta be better than a bare crimp. Just one thing: If you plan to use adhesive heat shrink OVER the crimp--you'd better go real sparingly on the paste.
