WD-40 is good for killing Carpenter Bees and larvae.

I use WD-40.


That one works well on most things, I have not tried it on fishing lures.

Water based silicone???

As far as baby powder...get it wet a time or two and it's gone.

I have 3 different brands of silicone spray and they all say they contain petroleum distillate. What brand is water based? All 3 of the ones that I have say to used them on rubber weather stripping to keep them pliable and stop them from drying out.

All have some type of pet. in them as a "carrier". The ones that spray out clear have the most, and are real oily. The ones that spray out a milky whitish color are considered water based.

WD-40 is their shorthand for "Water Displacement Formula - Experiment #40". The rest is history.

I use WD-40 all over my 5th wheel and truck to lubricate and prevent rust formation on metal bearing surfaces, such as the rods on the hydraulic rams of my leveling system, the mating surfaces and wear points on my 5th wheel hitch, hinges, latches, even the roller bearings on my kitchen drawers. I use Silicone #303 to preserve and protect rubber surfaces such as the seals on our slideouts.

I have been advised to spray WD-40 on my knees to combat arthritis. Some of our church members swear by it. I'll keep you all posted on results!!

Lippert recommends do not use that on your ram maintenance. Amazon sells a product made by CRC in a green can. Lippert gave me a can when they replaced one of my rams. Told me just to use this. Only place I found it was on Amazon for like 7.95 a can.

Getting back to the OP's original post about WD40 on seals...
Bottom line, WD40 was developed as a water displacement product for metal surfaces.
Pretty much anything with a petrolium base will eventually dry out rubber parts.
303 was specifically designed as a rubber and vinyl protectant.
Thats it, two totally different products for two totally different areas of use.
Everyone will have their own preferences, so use what you want, use what works best for you. But, chemicals have come a long way since WD40 and silicon...e were developed. Heck, I remember back in the 60's we used to use petrolium jelly on the sides of tires to make them shine, cause there was nothing else.
