Breaker bad

Over the last year I've have 5 circuit breakers stop working. Today it was the bilge blower. Cleaning the terminals didn't help. I've used Blue Sea Systems replacements, which are good quality and have the white reset button with the rating number on them. The photo below shows the effect of salt air on 12 year old electrical components. I'm going to proactively replace all the critical breakers when I get the time.

    Di-electric grease or Boeshield T-9 on the connections will help!

    I use CRC terminal protector, works really well. It leaves a red coating on whatever you spray.

    Thanks for the advice. Not sure why I bothered fixing the wiper breaker, I've never needed a wiper. When under way I look through Isinglass.
