Looks safe enough from this side of the country! Hey, at least they connected the ground wire so they were somewhat safety-conscious.

Why has it got seven wires going into it? confused Why is it parked on the tailgate of a truck? confused

Well, at least they attempted to scrape the paint off from under that self-tapping ground screw. smile

BTW the TEK screw is not a kosher method of grounding.
