I moved to a hotspring area and keep hearing that the sulfur in the air will degrade my electronics. Is this true and if so how do I prevent damage?

You can probably minimize but not eliminate it. A dehumidifier and keeping the doors and windows closed as much as possible is what you can do to minimize.
Here is an article on WHAT is happening -- https://www.hindawi.com/journals/isrn/2013/846405/

Coat motherboard with an extra layer of clear spray paint on backside then with a fine brush cover circuit traces. (do not coat the chips as they need to cool)
You could also give the sulfur something else to eat. Get a copper sheet or the copper pot scrubber and position btw intake fan and motherboard, replace when white.
