12v elec... is bigger better?

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.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
