    I would put them in water balloons to be safe.
    If your going to submerge them i would:
    put the balloon around it then zip tie the end put a little grease on the end of the ballon and put another zip tie on the opposite side of the grease to make a bubble of grease at the end of the balloon. Been doing this sense I started crawling and have never had a problem.

    Dielectric grease and balloon and zip tie to prevent rust will help
