I think I’m beginning to see one huge advantage to just using tape.

Less arguing. Peace and quiet is good. [emoticon]

Over-run from political discussions. People are arguing over which side to part their hair on.

I say "Yes of course you're right" and back away without turning my back to the menace to my peace abd quiet.

Did I write 'part'? Well maybe the part of my head that needs to be shorn every so often.

Repairs? Should suit the sensibilities if the person affected. I've seen individuals to sensitized to perfection that they seemingly anguish over an eighth of an inch out of parallel.

The OP has a chance here to insert his own Surge Guard and use lots of wire nuts ( and drive the electricians here nuts too)

IMO wire nuts would be ok for this job. I did that with the shore cord on the 5er we had and the portable Surge Guard. I moved the Surge Guard to be permanently inside.

The shore cord's bitter end was to a junction box before going to the power centre. I undid the shore cord from the junction box. I cut the ends off the Surge Guard and aiming it the right way towards the pedestal end, joined three wires to the junction box.

Now I had two plug ends to play with and the bitter end of the shore cord to link up. I forget why, but I used the two Surge Guard plugs and got it all together using lots of wire nuts. Worked great for over 10 years.

For selling the 5er, I took that out and put the shore cord back where it was OEM. Put the Surge Guard back together with lots of wire nuts [emoticon] and now it is inside the Class C still working. ( I use the C's OEM shore cord all inside to the Surge Guard and another cable for the RV to pedestal run. I can also plug into the inverter instead of into the cable that goes to the pedestal for Whole House)

I used mostly those big blue wire nuts because they have the side wings so you can twist harder on them. I didn't know the red ones with no side wings were for 10 AWG as was mentioned. I use red ones for # 8 but find the blue ones can be twisted tighter even with #8. Whatever works! [emoticon]

Use the proper tape I mentioned and it will never fail.

I love silicone self fusing tape
I have been using the 3M brand
I always use it on connections I don't want to re-visit
Will try the F2t tape next time I order some
I wrap new cable ends with it, to seal them, better protection than shrink tubing


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !
