WD40 displaces the dampness. Which is fine as long as you let it all evaporate off.....
Only if you're generous enough to get enough in there to short across the pins! Difficult on a towbar connector as they're shrouded from each other.

It forms a corrosion resistant barrier on the contacts (which is still electrically conductive) and this helps keep the connections sound.
