I use vaseline too. Also I use it on my trailer plug and socket, both get immersed when I launch/recover. Packed it right in there and not given me any trouble

Or just make sure the plug is hanging down when you leave it.

I had a box trailer that has lived outside for at least 20 years, granted it probably doesn't see quite as much salt air as the boat trailer, but I swapped the cheap plastic plug for a metal bodied one, and made sure it is always left hanging pins down. A squirt of WD40 once every third solstice & no problems yet........
