I am installing four 12 volt batteries for a new motor in my boat. What size battery cables do I need to hook these in series?
Also, I am looking at boat switches from your partner site, EzAcDc, however I need to know if they snap into a the console panel, or do they need a box to be mounted into? If a box is needed do you know where to find them?
The best way to determine the cable size is to use my boat wiring size calculator. Use the entire run as your cable length to calculate the correct wire size.
Our boat switches snap into a hole that measures .85″ x 1.45″. If the rear of the panel is completely exposed, I would recommend some form of protective cover. If used for DC, there is no requirement for a safety enclosure.
Hope this helps,
