The mobile home industry in the 60s used aluminum power wires and there were many fires when the wiring failed. A tightly squeezed fitting will just cause the aluminum to cold flow away from the connection over time. It is not a question of "if" but "when".

We need to remember that everything inside the trailer is experiencing basically an earthquake as the unit rolls down the road. The frequency of the shake , rattle and roll varies with the tires type and their pressure, suspension condition, speed and road conditions, type of hitch and tow vehicle....
