Default To lube or not to lube?

After cleaning my new perlick faucets should I lube all the seals? They looked to have some sort of dry lube on them upon receipt.
Thanks,
Bill

There is sterile food grade silicone you can buy, but it is usually not necessary for that application.

I like to lube my faucet anytime I get the chance, shank as well.

I appreciate the responses. I have a good supply of keg grease. I should have the faucets installed early next week.

Is she a young one, or is she old? the young ones tend to not need it, but the old ones will sometimes need a helping hand
