Jeff .. I think the silicone stuff they are talking about is the rubber .. hardening .. gasket maker stuff.I don't know if it's the same as silicone but I use dielectric grease
I've had pretty good luck over the years by placing my new butt connector or any plastic coated wire connector .. against the silicone tube opening .. then a gentle squeeze until the goo is visible coming out the other end .... then stick the wire in & crimp it. Makes for a good weather / water proof connection. It also prevents "wiggle breakage" at the fragile stripped area .. where most wire / butt connections all seem to break off.
