Water sensor wiring

Does anyone have a method to replace/splice a new wire for the water level sensor? One of the wire on our 2003 HR Endeavor was ran behind a support for the fresh water tank and finally wore through. The wire is about the size of a dozen strans of hair. I do not image that soldering is the best method. I need not only to repair the wire but to add about 10" in lenght to re-route it. Besides there is NOT much room to work in the water bay.

Try to match the wire size, if you can, mostly to avoid overheating the smaller wire when soldering , Install "shrink tube" before you twist the wire, for both joints, use a thin electronics solder, and a dual heat solder gun on low for that small a wire. Shrink the tube with a match or hair dryer. Good luck.

Soldering works fine, So do crimp on connectors
