    Never use a petroleum base on O-rings. Use silicon grease.

    I don't think anyone said anything besides Silicon grease on the O rings. Now for holding the black shrink wrap cover aquaseal or shoe goo, and that can be used to seal the endcap to pod gap also, as mentioned.

    Aquaseal question: I bought a tube and used a bit of it and closed the cap. Next time I go to use it it has solidified near the cap. I punch through and can use a bit more of it and close the cap. Now again I try and use it but forget it - I'd have to tear open the tube and get what I can for a last use try. Is this typical with this stuff?

    Yes, best to punch a very small hole, seal tight and refrigerate. A tube last me about a year and I buy the big tube.

    How should I reattach this? What kind of glue? And at what point should I place the glue?
    Clear silicone caulking is what I use and it works very well, wipe a thin coat around the inside of the rubber boot, put boot on and hit it with a heat gun or hot air dryer for a couple minutes then let it sit over night. Rubber boot is only to protect the o-ring from UV rays, it has nothing to do with keeping the pod waterproof. If for any reason you remove the allen set screws when you put them back on DO NOT COUNTER SINK THEM! You can crack the end cap by doing so.

    I prefer the RTV silicon to SEAL the cap and that shrink tubing. RTV wont just peal off like regular silicon will after awhile in the water..... which allows water to get past it. Joes right........ take that male plug apart you may need to clean those wires and put electric grease on them...... they could be the problem with salt water jumping the current causing an electrolysis like situation. A dab of water shouldnt cause that. Also swap the gasket you have on the charger for that one.
    Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who'll argue with you.... John Wooden.
