After cleaning squirt Di-Electric grease into the connections and plug into 7 pin on TV. Now when storing cord leave the end pointing down. NO need for a cap that can trap moisture and cause corossion.

I have kept my trailer plugs, bumper pulls and now fifth wheels up and out of the dirt, pointed down or now in the hitch. Never had an issue, also make sure the plug on the truck is kept closed when not in use. I guess it wouldn't hurt to add a little electrical lube to the male and female plugs. [emoticon]

I clean my contacts with WD40 electronics contact cleaner and then give them a coat of DeoxIT. I used the stuff for years in electronics and it works great.

A shot of WD40 works for me.
