Trailer lights cable - 7 core

There is quite a bit of discussion here and elsewhere about the unreliability of trailer electrics. Many of us ate switching to LED lights to try and find some improved liability.

But

!t major source of trouble remains in the connecting cable. It occurs to me that things would be greatly improved if we used tinned copper cable similar to that used for general boat cabling already.

I have searched the internet and the only source seems to be in Australia. All the suppliers I have asked in UK look blank when I asked them. "No call for it mate"

Does anyone know of a source of tinned 7 core in UK?

I think it's only the outer protection that is tinned

This any good?

Buy Multicore Industrial Cable High Temp 1.00mm 6 Core+E Silicone Cable Lapp 0046012 online from RS for next day delivery.
