We highlight some problems encountered and lessons learned in obtaining stable operation of the SLD CRID for the past four years. During the 1994-95 run of the SLC, we achieved stable operation of liquid (C6F14) and gas (85% C5F12/15% N2) radiators with good UV transparency, and we regularly operate the TPCs with excellent drift lifetimes and good single photo-electron detection efficiency.
