    Silicon Oil

    The instructions with my rMS state to put silicon oil on the pins when reconnecting the Shearwater. Paul does not seem to have a preference in oils. I would hate to get something that had incompatible additives, etc.

    Does anyone have a specific brand they prefer?

    Check the existing threads - O2 or silicone grease we use on o-rings is fine. I used silicone on the outside connection only and O2 grease inside.

    only just lube a little little bit the pins of the wet-mateble connectors, so they key-in easely
    surely do not fill the female side of the connector with oil: this will create overpressure on the contacts when forcing the connector together
