You will no doubt thank yourself later. I made a wiring diagram, but that's still an hour (easy going, I do not wire quickly) for any replacement for me. Like I said, probably not a huge issue with 3 components and 5 switches, but I still would prefer full modularity (if only just for easy tear down)

This winter I think I will redo everything, I keep having occasion for beefier connectors, and I have the crimper and solder station already.

F.W.I.W. I’ve been using the “posi-lock” connectors with great success. Also fill them with di-electric grease due to salt issues running winters in Michigan.

Forgot I had that grease, thanks for advice and I should probably lube my plugs next examination too.
