More on crimping: Before you insert the cable into the lug, you put some corrosion prevention compound into the lug. Home depot sells Noalox. I think thier SKU is 498-101. A 4 oz tube. The connection is then covered with heat-shrink tubing. A 2-3 in piece will do. You can buy the tubing with meltable sealing glue already inside. Revolt sells the lowest cost tubing. No glue. You can coat your connection with 3M #5200, fast curing, then the tubing, then the heat.
