Problems with cover for 7-pin cord

I thought a cover for the trailer 7-pin electrical cord would be good to keep dirt out when not connected to the TV. I was wrong again. Boy did that $5.95 purchase cause a problem on my trip. This is the blue, green mold that formed in 11 days before leaving for Memorial Day. I cleaned with toothbrush and hoped for the best. “Check trailer wiring” message came up before I left the driveway, although the trailer lights stayed on. Stopped at Lowes for a wire brush, electrical contact cleaner, and di-electric grease. Took a while but it seems to have solved the problem.

When will I learn to leave well enough alone?

If you are like me, you will never learn to leave well enough alone...

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Nothing fancy for me. I give both ends of the plug a shot of Corrosion X every once in a while. Keeps the contacts clean and shiny.
