Water pump wire came undone after 5 years


Recommended Posts

After 5 years of use the uncrimped wire, which supplies power to the water pump, finally came loose from the connector. 

After close inspection I discovered the connector was never actually crimped onto the wire. Only the plastic housing around the connector was crimped to the wire.

I also added a tie wrap to the wire protector so it does not pull down on the connector again. 

Easy fix.

You might also want to check those water pump mounting screws. They looks as sketchy as the wiring job.

Thanks. We'll take a look at them.

Looking at that wiring, I could tell you exactly who wired your trailer.

Actually, it is fairly amazing that it took five years for that wire to become detached enough for it to stop working.  And, it does not appear that there was any "arching" on the end of that wire.

Steve, I think you should write or dictate a history of Oliver development, to include all the internal insight you have....to be published posthumously, of course. 🙂
