Battery Terminal Corrosion Protection

My 5th Wheel has two 12V batteries. Each battery has a standard battery terminal and a screw terminal for both positive and negative cable connection. My cables are lug fitted and connect to the screw terminal. I am starting to get corrosion buildup on the terminals connections. I know there is a corrosion protective pad that you can buy for the standard terminals. Does anyone know of a way to protect the screw terminals from corrosion? Are there products on market that will do this?

Clean them well and then use a product like this. There are many other similar products you can get at any auto parts store.

I got a spray on battery terminal protection spray at the auto parts store and have had no issues since using it.

Use the spray noted above or plain Vaseline.

I found some that comes in a can with a brush - kinda looks like a gasket sealer can
