The one advantage of the clear crimp-on "wire nuts" is that I can see how poor a job was done of joining the wires before crimping. And don't even begin with me about color coding wiring.

In all the trailers I've owned or worked on in the past, not one soldered wire connection was ever found. This is going all the way back to my parent's 1978 Starcraft pop-up. If that was soldered at the factory, it's an industry first.
