The original connectors were aircraft type, in that the terminals were self cleaning, every time you used the connectors..
The huge problem with the flat blade connectors is that they easily corrode, one grain of sand can stop a proper connection, and as they age, it's clean and clean and clean them.
Many owners invest a little more money and go back to the original type connectors.
They are not very expensive, but they do cost more than the flat bladed connectors.
Ball park, about 20 bucks for the socket and plug.
Those would forever end the "plug" problem.
