Ok, so I thought I had a foolproof setup, but apparently not. I believe my problem to be the sealant I’m using that goes between the mast clamp and the aluminum tube/motor/everything else. I dumped tons on both sides of the “firewall” and it appears that water might be leaking through because the 5200 doesn’t bond to the silicon wires. Any advice on alternative sealants?
I’m also thinking it would be good to have the connectors flush rather than the wires dangling out so I could quickly plug and unplug the motor. But will I get into heating/melting issues?
