Dielectric grease

Grease is messy...

Electrical insulating tape stretched or otherwise won't keep the damp out, even good quality stuff.

For something that works and isn't messy use self amalgamating tape. I've had connectors outside exposed to sunlight and the weather for periods of 10 years or more. When I removed that installtion and opened up the connectors they where exactly as I installed them and not covered in grease. B-) You just wrap the joint/connectors from the outer jacket of one cable to the outer jacket of the other and back again overlapping each turn and stretching the tape as you go. It quickly forms a solid "rubber" covering.
Cheers
