For all but the coaxial cable or open wire feeders I would look at 
these: <>. Also look at the Metri-Pack 
series for high current (> 20A) applications.

They are found in all sorts of applications including automotive, 
marine, and agricultural applications. I'm sure you've seen plenty of 
them on your car and they very rarely fail due to corrosion.

Selection and installation is very important. In particular you need 
to be sure that you choose the correct seals for the outer diameter of 
the wire you are using.
