    Yeah, the ones that you need to crimp down the center piece.

    I work in the RV industry and these are far too common

    Too funny you say that. I was an RV service tech off and on for about 12 years. And yeah, they are called Scotch Locks and are garbage for any wiring that would be exposed to the elements.

    Yeah I was surprised they'd use them for anything in the elements given how bad they are when they're just buried in a wall or ceiling

    I guess with enough liquid electrical tape I could learn to trust them for a short period of time

    You guys are killing me! These connectors are bad I agree, but wrap them in electrical tape and tuck them in a good "protective," place and they're just fine! I've had mine on my car over 2 years now and not a single issue even after I did an inspection on 1 of the connectors just to check things out and it looks like the day it was installed.
