I have one of these plugs adjacent to my tabernacle to unplug and plug in mast electrical loads when stepping and un-stepping the mast. I waterproof the plug with electrical tape, three wraps, tightly pulled to stretch the tape as the wraps are made. I make the wraps three inches up and down the wiring on both sides of the plug. Never had a problem with this method in 28 years. Also protects the plug from UV. Only had to replace the plug once in the boat's 33 year life.
