Electrical Question

8 posts in this topic

There isn't a general maintenance/tech forum so I'll just throw a question here. What kind of electrical connector do you use when you need to connect three wires? I'm trying to finish some wiring for my new headlight and taillight and I haven't found anything that really looks robust enough for off-road use.

Thanks.

the best thing to do is solder and shrink tube. this way it wont loose conection or get high in resistance over time due to offroading.

I'm not a big fan of soldering wires together because then you can't take it a part when you need to repair/replace something. Any other ideas?

I would use weather proof connector like this on ebay:

I'm with Martinfan. If you solder it correctly it is only a small spot that can easily be cut out and replaced if need be. Any type of connector (even weather resistant) is prone to failure. I wouldn't want to be caught out in the middle of nowhere when that "what if" happens...

Just a humble opinion!

Me Too:thumbsup: I replaced all the connections on my Baja Designs kit to solder and shrink tube, it's not hard to clip a wire and solder it back, and it will never come loose or corode
