Waxoyl would work (if available in the USA) because it is specifically 
formulated to prevent corrosion in wet environments.

My old moonbounce system had a rotating steel mast in a ground socket 
filled with Waxoyl. Although 10 years of trapped condensation had turned 
the Waxoyl into a water emulsion, the mast came out bright and 
completely rust-free.
