A bit off topic, but relevant. Back in 1980, I bought a new Honda Accord. It had been in a flood with mud marks higher than the dashboard. There were Saabs, Jettas and Beemers on the lot from the same flood. I bought the Honda cheap contingent on getting it to run on the lot after changing all fluids. It ran perfectly for 4 years and 60k miles, including the stereo, power windows and A/C. The other flood cars didn't do as well. The difference was that Honda applied silicone dielectric grease on ALL electrical connectors. Other brands suffered fried electrical systems. Ever since then, whenever I do anything with automotive electronics, I apply dielectric grease to all connectors, even fuses. This will eliminate moisture issues and improve connectivity. As a preventive measure, I've applied it to all accessible connectors beneath the coach.
