Q. Is a live battery terminal with no protective cover considered a defect under section 1.9 Electrical wiring and battery RfR 2b/c? This is quite common.
A. Before it could be rejected under RfR 2b, the wiring or terminal connector would have to be damaged or deteriorated to the extent that it is likely to cause a short or become detached. Simply not having a protective cover is unlikely to fit these criteria.
Similarly, to reject under RfR 2c the terminal connector would have to be exposed due to insulation being damaged or deteriorated.
Not having a protective cover to the terminal connector is not a Reason for Rejection (RfR).
