rv-pro.com January 2020 • RV PRO • 31 notable example of this is the incorporation of technology from German supplier WAGO to ensure that wires inside of its power products stay connected to terminals. The WAGO's connectors form a solid, sturdy connection between wires and terminals without the use of screws. "The way it works, it puts pressure on the wire – because it's spring-loaded lever-action connection – and by putting pressure on the wire it never has a chance to loosen up," Walters says. "And so that makes for a much better connection. Also, the guys at the OEMs don't have to torque any wires – that's a big deal. "So, we started an initiative to eliminate screws everywhere we can. We have eliminated connection screws on all of our 4500 Series All-in-One converters. Our next step is to eliminate all the screws on our busbars, which is another screw connection," he adds.
