I've had a pool for several years and one thing that I've had problems with is the motor wiring. It's very very cramped in the connection area and the wires are frayed, taped and the slip on terminals look to be in bad shape. I've replaced the terminal ends a couple times. Every time I remove the motor (at least yearly), it's a real battle to thread the wires through the 90 degree conduit connector and into the connection area. I guess I could hire a pro electrician to replace the whole thing but I was thinking of the following and would like some feedback...
I would cut off about the last 6 - 8" of wires (3 - white, black, green) and remake them like new with new slip on connectors. Connect them 'permanently' to the motor. The loose ends would be wired to a heavy duty three prong male plug. The other loose ends (from the box) would be wired to a heavy duty three prong female plug. Going forward, I would only need to plug/unplug them to move the motor and the connections inside the motor would remain undisturbed and tight.
Thanks in advance.
