6 posts in this topic

I'm rewiring my wheelhouse and was wondering

if 10 or 12 gauge wire is too big?? (it is stranded wire)

I use two deep cell batterys wired in paralell

Here is a list of the things I use

(3) L.E.D. lights

Radio/CD player

Blower for heater (5 amps)

(1) outdoor light

(4) 1157 hole lights

T.V.

Thanks in advance

I THINK YOUR BEST OFF WITH THE HEAVIER WIRE. TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE WIRE TRAVEL. YOU'LL BE HAPPY YOU WENT 10 GAUGE. THE HEAVIER WIRE HELPS WITH HEAT AND LINE LOSS.

Do you come off batteries to fuse box?Then to accessories.

From your battery use wires properly sized to supply a main terminal strip fuse or circuit breaker also properly sized to adequately supply the total calculated applied load.

The main fuse will then be used to supply all other branch circuit fuses. Each branch circuit fuse and wire shall be sized to adequately and safely supply the intended loads.

If you are not confused by what I just wrote, good luck. If you are confused then hire an eletrician so you don't start a fire.

Keep it safe - If you run 12 gauge fuse it at 20 amps. If you run 10 gauge fuse it at 30.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
