Default Intermittent Wet Start Issue

Over the course of three years, my 5.9L 2002 1500 has had issues when it is super humid/or raining like it is here now all say since last night midnight. It will crank and not fire. One time it failed at 70 mph on the interstate and was determined to be the coil pack. Next time, it would not fail on wet day at the shop until I sprayed the distributor cap and found a hairline crack in it. Recently, I have re-replaced both those units and it is turning over but not firing....Any ideas?? Frustrated in MD.

Can you pull up codes? I'm a hemi guy, but sounds kinda like a crank sensor. If it's wires, spray with wd-40 or kerosene.

No I cannot pull up any codes. No check engine light and doing the three turns of the key just tells me DONE with no code output!!
