Leaking electric slide locks

As we sit here in Florida being pelted, at times, by wind and rain another electric slide lock has developed a water leak. First, the bedroom slide lock started leaking a year or so ago. Determined that the water was coming down the paddle shaft after blowing into the cavity that lock sets in. Now, the same thing has happened on the kitchen slide. Has anyone ran into this problem also? If so, what was the remedy? The bedroom slide I cut a piece of inner tube and taped it over the lock. But I can't be doing this on all of the locks. I may call Newmar next week if there are no answers on this. But I know that they will probably say to replace all eight locks and I don't think I will want to pay the toll on that.

The rain will corrode the connections in lock as some have found out and people have had to remove and clean.
Here is some info on locks and there is more in QT's 1 & 2.

Thanks for the reply and where to look. I don't think I want to remove a lock right at the moment due to watching Newmar work on them when the coach was new. Instead, bought some black Ductape and made little covers for all eight locks that will hinge up when the locks deploy inside the coach. May work on them if I get extremely bored here in Florida this winter.
