Yep, CLR is the stuff you can buy just about anywhere. It stands for Calcium, Lime, Rust. I buy it by the gallon at Home Depot and put it into a spray bottle. I use it for cleaning the bath tub. The scum just kind of melts off of everything. That way you don't use a scotch brite, like I used to, and take the shine off of both the tub and chrome fittings. It does have some fumes, though.
You could possibly tin the ends. With the old car connectors you can pull the ends out of the plug itself. I'm not sure that you can do it with the later model stuff. The dielectric grease should do a decent job of keeping the connectors clean.
Just fill a bowl with the CLR and soak the end in it is the procedure.
Advance auto carries Evaporust. It does the same thing but wouldn't be as caustic and it quits working as soon as you take the part out. I didn't have any at home.
