To solder or not
So I did some digging around town and thought I would share my findings about the soldering versa crimping .
1 Best method is crimping using marine grade connectors which has the shrink wrap to make them water tight .
2 You need a good crimping tool, one that ratchets and sets the connector as apposed to the pliers type.(expect to pay north of 30 dollars.)
The crimping tool was my best purchase for this task, I could just hold the crimping tool with the connector locked in with one hand while placing the wire with the other. Now there is no guessing the amount of pressure to set the connector with the ratcheting style, once you clamp down its done. Made it simple job's done :smile:
Sometimes its about the right tool especially while 6 ft up a ladder, BTW I already had a good wire stripper tool.
