Default Re: Replacing Propane detector

I often use crimp caps or butt connectors. I actually prefer crimp caps because they allow the wires to more easily be positioned into smaller spaces. I believe that they also have less probability of tight kinks which can stress the conductor.

I generally use a bit of Vaseline with each crimp.
