Default Black/gray tank valve lube?

If this is a redundant question,I apologize,
What is the proper lube grease for reassembling the Dupree valves
on the black and gray tanks?
I was certain a particular grease is required,but i have forgotten.
Thanks to all.

Hif Fred. I think the grease was silicon. How are you, Jennie and the girls?

Hi Randy
For some reason I thought we were supposed to lube up the Paddle with
some sort of grease? That's what I have been doing using marine grease
I had in the garage.
I suppose that is why I have problems not sealing comepletely after a couple years?

we used all kinds of grease through the years,some real pricey stuff and some military surplus stuff.
we always had grease all over the assembly area and on us too.

So,we tested silicon spray and it worked as well as anything else,was faster to apply,made less of a mess and everybody has a can of it.

I made a cool machine that pumped grease on the paddles,still have it too..

Fred,

Homey Lowes sell a small plastic tub of silicone plumbing grease for just under $3. It's tiny and won't take up any room if you truly want a grease. Look in the plumbing repair sections. It's carded and a grey container.
