We’re getting a new rtv, but I’m wanting to be able to put a weatherproof socket on to run slug pelleter, sprayer and pheasant spinner. (Not all at once.)
At the moment we’re using a mix of all sorts of plugs. I just want to go to one reliable type across everything.
I was thinking Anderson plugs but are they just for HD cables ?

Yes Anderson and go just a shade bigger than you'll ever need, last a lifetime.

E-Bay have them, go for a 30 or 50 AMP or even a tad bigger just for the physical size and strength

They do look good.
Having never used Anderson connectors do they have a cable clamp on them ?
I can just imagine wires continuously pulling out if not.

Once the wires are crimped/soldered into the connections they push into the main connector and are held in place with a metal spring.
 
Personally I wouldn’t use Anderson plugs. I’ve found to get some sort of corrosion on them and the power transfer greatly reduces. I’ve had to pull the pins and clean in a wire wheel before now.


I’d use Deutsche plugs if it was me.
