I have the Proam quick disconnect. It seems with some dew and moisture the spring is rusting. What chemical can I spray in there to prevent rust? I used wd40, which works for a few weeks then more rust. Why make something stainless steel and a rustable spring? Is there a better model that I should be using. I know in a few weeks with more rust will cause me to lose power to my antenna.

I've been through that with a couple different brands of the thin type couplings. I don't have the rust problems with the Hustler quick disconnects. Hi-Q antennas http://www.hiqantennas.com/ has a nice threaded aluminum disconnect with no spring that won't rust.

GLA Systems, better known as Texas Bug Catcher, also has a nice one albeit pricy.
