Favourite method to splice automotive wiring?
I need to tap some 12v wiring in our tent trailer. I’ve found some good candidates to tap, but there’s not a lot of slack in the existing wires. One connection will be inside the trailer, the other will be underneath, so sealing is definitely on my list of priorities for that one.
The wires that I’m eyeing current run to marker lights, and the porch light.
What are everyone’s recommended ways to splice automotive wiring? I’ve read a bit on some of the snap-on taps, and won’t be using those.
