Installation/removal of mating connectors or protective covers is greatly eased if a small amount of silicone grease is applied on the inside of the rubber shells of the mating connector.
If salt water gets into the connector by some accident, it won't cause permanent damage to the SCAMP. Use a squirt bottle of distilled water to thoroughly wash the contacts, then blow dry using the leak test bulb. This same procedure applies to mating connectors.
Don't twist the connector. The plastic
used in these connectors is very brittle and breaks easily in tension. The connector is
tightened to 15 inch-pounds. This is surprisingly little torque.
