I travel with mine a lot and only take it off the housing when it is packed in the backpack ready to fly. Before each trip (so 5-6 times per year or every two months or so) I lubricate the 0-rings with Tribolube. Even here in Los Angeles they can get quite full of muck. Also, make sure to carry a spare set, they are quite thin and you want to make sure your trip can continue if one somehow breaks.
