Default lost prime overnight

hi all ! It happened again. fuel system lost its prime after sitting 13 hours. This time its not like last time, last year my diesel would start, run for 30 seconds then die, loosing prime. You guy told me to check pre filter fuel heater, and see if the electrical connector was wet with fuel. it was, so i added electrical grease in the plug, and it worked for about a year. tried that trick again but its not working? wonder if that should be changed? this time instead of running for 30 seconds, it just dont start. if i catch it before 8 hours she starts, a little rough but runs and drives fine. replaced fuel filter, but that didn't help. could it be closer to the injector pump. any ideas?
