I was thinking about using an Anderson connector as well. I actually had made a post this past week I believe, asking for input on it. One person pointed out that The Anderson Connectors are not water/weatherproof. I'm sure you COULD make them water/weatherproof, but another person said that they use a Philips style plug, like these:
That Philips connector will work excellent, but i've had numerous customers use the Anderson connectors. if you simply load up the rear of the plug with dielectric grease, they will be fine. They are mounted on virtually every tow truck on the road who use them daily.
I have 3 or 4 years on my Anderson plugs. purchased them at NAPA for MUCH more than they are online but if you need them now they're worth the extra cash
Never had an issue. I filled the back with silicone caulk (just don't let it get on the connections). The off season I fill it with dielectric grease and clean it out at the beginning of the season, but for $12 I may just get an extra end to seal it up
