Yes, good point. After years of owning a boat (in a past life) I used a liquid tape product for many electrical connections I wanted to seal up and will use that when I am ready to seal up the sensors. This stuff. BUT,...I may choose to upgrade the sensors to the ones Herk talked about if so motivated.

EDIT: Ha, by the time I finished posting and cleaning up my grammatical mistakes Herk beat me to it. But ya, liquid tape has worked for me.

Yes, used that too and probably more than the one in the link I posted. Yes, good stuff indeed.
