WD40 is a poor choice. It is really light and will not last long. Use anti-seize on the lugs, or at least marine grease. Use some type of corrosion block (I like CRC but there are many brands) on other fasteners and springs, etc. Remove the jack and take it apart - lubricate the moving parts and spray the rest with corrosion block, especially the insides.

Balance the wheels. Check to see if the brake pads have stainless backing plates, if not they will not last too long in salt.

Electrical grease on the pigtail contacts.
