Ditto that...as well as marine shrink sleeve. Contains an adhesive that doubles up on keeping water/moisture off the connection. Regular shrink sleeve does not.

West Marine's black goo: "Liquid Electrical Tape". Use on top of heat shrink connections or any type of connection!

I spray a bit of Corrosion X to the connections every spring, when I check my wires.
