| | Re: Help! Sudden Melting/burning Endcaps
I'm 99% certain at this point that the issue was just corrosion in the end caps after many years use (and in the case of one end cap, from a dunking in water) - they've been in use for more than 8 years over water. I'll share anything I find out from my local electronics suppliers as well. Using waterproof end caps rather than my water resistant end caps would probably help.
