Corrosionx works. Ive tried everything else mentioned with some success until a breach is made and the water starts making its way in. The thing you have to remember is anyplace not sealed will allow water to get through. The ends of wires is the last place you think also but when submerged enough times water will go right through the wire like a pipe right to whatever you think is sealed.Corrosionx will penetrate and seal.
Trying to make the world a better place for everybody one rant at a time.

I sealed off a couple Axial electronics boxes with some Black RTV.

Seems to work just fine.
