Wiring Changes....

Well I guess from working on aircraft for 25+ years as a Avionics technician I have a problem with wiring that is not done correctly. I made a few changes to the wiring on the tongue of the trailer for the Battery. It had house type wiring twist on caps and regular black electrical tape. It now has aircraft grade splices and they are sealed with vulcanizing tape.... Lee

I agree, this is why I try to do all my own maintenance and modifications.

Once had a new motor put in and in the first 200 miles wires came loose due to cheap crimp fittings. Both time the wires landed on hot engine components had to splice the burnt wires to get back on the road. Needless to say all have been redone and with quality splices and sealed with heat shrink.
