Nothing beyond the good practice. Clean it, avoid water, use Isopropil alchool (or similar non water based contact cleaners). Lubricate the mechanical spinning axes with a dry chemical like Sailkote, and make sure it spins freely. If going aloft, take the time to inspect your VHF antena. What else ?

SD, the Isopropyl (or 2-propanol C3H8O (H3C-HCOH-CH3)) commonly marketed in the market, has in fact less than 1% of water, and that's why it's the first choice when cleaning internal electronics. Quick evaporation also contribute. Chances for oxidating any metal based component is almost zero.
