Hi: Need to relocate my solar panels. Can the original MC4 connectors be reused? I'm hoping to make as small a hole in my camper as possible. thanks

If the MC4 connectors you have have the threaded "connection sleeves" then you can reuse them, usually. A number of ebay sellers sell the connectors too.

I found MC4 connectors on Amazon quite inexpensively. They aren't very re-usable, it generally damages to connector shell to remove the conductor. Ask me how I know.
