Hi,

I wonder if anyone else uses silicon spray to maintain the life of rubber components (hoses, tubes, seals, etc).

Any use in applying on a regular basis?

Religiously for years, and cannot recall replacing any rubber grommets due to rot. I also spray motors and electronic connections with WD40 after washing to displace moisture. Makes em shine!:mrgreen:

WD-40 & Armor-All for weather stripping

I regularly spray Armor-All & WD-40 on all the weather stripping on my vehicles. I believe that it works because I have a 1970 Datsun 240-Z that still has functional door & hatch seals.

YES - use it

I've used it for many years. Brought my '87 Accord new, after many, many years of great service 218,000 on the clock, a big doe took my Accord down. I was running about 85mph when she nailed me. The Accord still had all the OEM rubber such as hoses, fuel lines, etc when I sold it to a kid and he drove her home with the right side wiped out head light to tail light.
I use silcone on all my rubber.

I use it on most everything I want to keep looking new, it prevents UV damage. I also spray it onmy calipers after washing for a new look, drag the brake for a while though to burn it off the rotor. I also spray it on all the rubber lines between the jugs. One note though. Try not to spray it directly on plastic as it will stain it, wipe it on instead and be sure the plastic has not been in the hot sun prior to application. Its great for a new look, brake lines can really shine.
