    Before, whenever I spliced any wires that required shrink tubing, I always
    soldered and used shrink tubing that had a salve like substance inside the
    tube, and there was never a problem with moisture or corrosion. I can hardly
    find this type shrink tubing anymore, and what I did find was cost
    prohibitive for the little I use. I'm wondering if after soldering, apply
    some common silicone sealer and slide the tubing over it and shrink it.
    Should keep it sealed, however, is there something in the silicone that
    would corrode the solder connection?

    Many thanks for any help. Lee.
     
  2. Your local auto parts store sells silicone dielectric compound in
    small tubes. It's used on plug boots and external wiring connectors.
