    I would go with the 2-5 wire splices jumpered together. Just use the correct wire nuts.

    There are all kinds of options.

    Wire nuts and terminal strips are probably the simplest.

    Wire nuts are probably the fastest solution.

    These are $2-3 each. I think you can get two wires on each side so you would only need two of them and a small piece of DIN rail to mount them on.

    Are those WAGO connectors suitable for outdoor locations?

    Michigan. It's a beautiful penninsula, I've looked around.

    Actually, I never gave it a thought. Are wire nuts suitable for outdoor connections?

    No good for 8-10 conductors although I've seen it done.

    I believe only those listed for it, such as DryConn.

    I don't think the WAGO are, just wondering if anyone can enlighten with specific info.

    Looking for something better than a Buchanan splice filled with Noalox, which isn't listed but which I personally trust a whole lot more than a wirenut with slippery goop inside.

    Even twist on connectors probably have similar rating. I have been looking a little but found nothing yet on WAGO site, but wonder if one doesn't need to look in the UL white book.

    I would guess either is rated for use in wet/damp location enclosures, but not in submersible applications.

    Since the EGC does not have any current flow I can pre-twist them together and confidently use one of these.
