Can I dry screws of solar panels and still have the junction box work?

Water got into the junction box on the back of a few of my solar panels PCB. There seems to be a bit of rusty water around the screws. The diodes look dry. Can I dry those screws and still have the junction box work?
  • You can use some acidic solution. like vinegar, lemon juice or mustard. Thinking about “stuff” you probably have around the house. Of course, other commercial-grade electronic cleaning products can also be used.
  • Mechanical cleaning with sandpaper, scraping, etc. Will provide clean and absolutely functional in no time!

Protected contacts will last ages. Make sure that any water that gets into the box has a way to get out!

What Others Are Asking

How can I electrically isolate a PCB from a heat sink?

I have a set of LED driving lights for motorcycle that must be wired through a ground-leg pulse width modulation dimmer. The problem is the mounting bracket for the lights is grounded, so the lamp shorts to ground through the motorcycle chassis and the PWM dimmer cant dim the lamps. How do I handle this problem?

CEM3 or FR4 PCB, which is the lightest material?

There is nothing about weight in the substrate datasheets I found.
Between CEM-3 or FR4, which is the lightest material ? What is the average weight by surface for CEM-3 boards ?
