    As you can see from my top pic, Most of the Original Coating (99.9999% was still there, Just Cracked, and starting to Peel);
    I Caught it at the Beginning on this Detector, it didn't look like SanMan's yet.
    or my other Sovereign's coil wire.
    So I Just Left what didn't Crack off while rapping it, on

    Yup, poor quality insulation for outdoor use. I've used that rubber/plastic tool dip stuff with good results. Kinda messy to apply on a coiled cable and sometimes takes a couple of dunks, but, once done, it's nice and flexible and seems to last a long time. I've also used RTV for small tears in insulation.

    Insul-dip Sooooo many uses! There's a "liquid electrical tape" that comes in a can with the brush in the cap. Works to keep stuff out of the connectors and for quick field repairs. A funny example, one of my buddies nicked his cable bad. Used it to kind of glue down the insulation on the wires, then repaired the outer jacket with a piece of soda straw glued on with it & coated. Saved the day! And he never did anything to it again. You can speed up the drying time with a heat gun. WAIT! heat gun out in the field you ask!?!? Doesn't everyone have an inverter under their passenger seat!?!?!
