Hydro When using a cap, you need to position the plug facing upward so it dont collect water, else the connections will sit in a water bath.

As usual, I am late to the party, but I sure like those molded plugs.

DieselDC is right --- I just checked mine with the cap on it (had been raining quite a bit the last few weeks) and sure enough, there was some corrosion present. I repositioned the plug so that water won't collect in it (upside down), gave it a good spritz of cleaner and that should do the trick. Everyone should check theirs.

ChrisSki I just joined the club. Ordered one. I had been looking at the plug the last time I towed and said to myself, "I wonder how long the metal will stay shiny?" Hopefully a little lonfer with this.

You can get one from amazon - just search 7-way plug cover or something like that.
Perfect!

Just ordered two.

Thanks, Tom
