Yeah - but was it on the ground when it happened?

Besides - it was only flat on the ground side - is that grounds for concern?

Odd that we boil vegetables, throw out the water and eat the vegetables - why do we boil the coffee, drink the water and throw out the grounds?

Methinks I've just about ground this down to a nub..............
:funnypost
By the way anyone have a P/N for that braided GROUND strap??

Thanks,
Louis

I am a firm believer in using conductive electrical grease, never seez and dialectic grease on connections.
Whats the difference? I thought it was just to stop the corrosion from forming?

So when I rub regular old grease on my Batt connections am I not getting as much current/flow and/or ground?

Thanks,

The grease you have on is fine as long as you didn't coat the terminals before attaching the cables. Then it is possible that you could be interfering with your connections. The important thing is to coat the connections to keep air from getting to them. If you have a good connection I wouldn't worry about it.
It is nice to have some conductive connection grease around though. I use it on just about all wire connections. You have to be very careful on multi-terminal connections - due to the fact that it is conductive. I usually just apply a small amount to the female side and dialectic grease on the outside.

I buy my conductive connection grease at an electrical supply house.
I coated the terminals before attaching them.

I usually just spray the red gooey, tacky, sticky stuff on connections after I tighten them...does a pretty good job of keeping air/water out of loop.

That stuff got a name?

Thanks,
