RE: connectors

I'm with David, it doesn't look good around that switch. 

The quality of crimp connectors varies widely. I prefer the ones that are totally encased in plastic, preferably made by Wurth. And use a good quality crimper, not a dollar-store model. The crimps will last forever, and no, you don't need to buy a ratchet crimper.

David, I do both, depending on application. 

I just wired my trailer and every connection has solder and marine heatshrink, the kind that has clear goo at the ends when you heat it. I also ran the protected wires through the frame where I could.

I also ran a ground to every light(and to the brakes) as I don't trust trailer frame grounds. All lights are LED, so theoretically they should all work forever, barring a cut wire or something.

Grounds on trailers are ALWAYS the problem with lighting issues!
