Had to redo the lights on my 10ft. utility trailer last fall. I opted to solder everything instead of wire nuts and the plastic blue splices. Lites are nice and bright and no ground issues plugged into truck. Son used wire nuts and he already has one light that flashes off and on while he's driving. We went back and soldered his.

Ok, I couldnít find the other connector that was mentioned, so I twisted, soldered, shrink wrapped, then coated the whole dang thing in liquid electrical tape (which is a great invention, who knew such a thing existed?!) and she works like a charm! Thanks for the help everyone!

A close look at the other wire shows it's been mashed too. Looks like road debris got it, or the jack pinched it if the rv has been jacked up for a flat tire.

Yea, Iím not sure what the deal is. I did change tires recently but the wire is well ahead of where I jacked it. Maybe when I was maneuvering the wheel on? The other wire also shows some abrasion from rubbing against the frame (so I should probably do something about that) but that doesnít explain the flattening. It definitely looks pinched.

While you're at it, be sure you have plenty of travel in the wiring for those severe bounce times such as chuck holes, or cattle guards etc. Add wire if need be and don't be afraid to re-route so there is no pinching of the wires through the travel of the suspension. I'm a big fan of soldering and long sections of shrink wrap for additional protection of the wires. Also be sure the grommets are in place where the wires go through the axle tube. They will disappear and the wire can chafe on the edge of the axle tube. I try to fit shrink wrap a ways through the hole. Even if you can't shrink it, it will still protect that edge. While you're under there try to clean things up so you don't have to worry about it later.
