My winter of rewiring

Post by the hammer » 19 Aug 2019, 09:07

From even before bringing my boat home from the dealer in 12/2011, I wanted 6ga wire run to my 24V trolling motor. The dealer "couldn't" do it, so I figured I would do when I got it home. It was not to be. Not for my lack of trying and trust me, I TRIED!
Fast forward to middle 2019, it's time to rewire. I want to move all electric off of the console and onto a panel to my right (photo to follow).
I plan on looking through the builds, posting my ideas and asking a lot of questions.
My only request? Your input, observations and opinions.
Soon, my friends. Soon!

Simple enough job, just be sure to use good quality components. I buy my electrical stuff from Del-City, even make up my own battery cables using one of those ‘sledge-hammer’ powered mechanical crimpers.

Don’t skimp on using adhesive-lined heatshrink, makes a good job better and adds YEARS to the longevity and reliability.

Remember that the total ‘ampacity’ for your circuits will be the total length FROM the battery TO the load and BACK again, so if only 10’ away, that’s at least a 20’ run for factoring the correct wire size. Too many miss this key detail ...

I noticed your commentary on the other thread, Tracker rebuild.
