Loose connection?

Recommended Posts

I don't think so. No signs of arcing on the wire itself, or overheated components. I see corrosion only. High moisture/corrosive environment?

That's my thought too - condensation and evaporation? (Wouldn't a loose connection make for resistance and overheating - scorching, etc?)

Corrosion aided by elevated temperatures. Based on the discoloration.

Heat a plate of steel with an oxy-acytl torch and the opposite side of the plate will corrode before your eyes. Lower temperatures can do the same with enough time.
