    Default Bumper Boy broken wire

    Some how during training yesterday a set of wires broke. (all three wires). Can I just splice them with a butt connector, to do I need to replace the complete harness?

    Solder the wires togeather and cover with shrink tubing. Thats if the wires just broke and not weather checked (rotten).

    Thanks. That worked. Found a few wiring problems as I was repairing the three broken wires. But looks like I'm back up and running.

    The wires have a tendency to break right out of the plastic adaptor that plugs into the receiver. Then you have to replace the metal anchor inside the plug which is a huge pain to get the old one out. Parts are available for other sources than Bumper boy.
