btw I never noticed the polarity thing on those AC wires. Learn something new every day. Monster Cables are designed to handle up to 10000 watts I believe? although its very flexible so I really dont trust it. Think I'll research some better heat resistant 12g wires.
I braid all my wires. Since my background is really in 60-70's car wiring, boat wiring and rock climbing Im very used to creating harnesses and knots (but only 12v with boats sometimes going parallel on a '1-both-2-off' switch), i solder a lot, and get the DC thing. never had to deal much with 24v systems in vehicles except for snowcats, which i only drove, not worked on. still i want minimal resistace from a connection so if i could use gold wire, solder and connectors Id be happy but................
btw explain "wicking" more on the post...its fun to watch and makes a so-so connection into something to celebrate. I could hang my bike from that 3 to 1 connection.
need a triangle bag before i learn to sew and make my own and start my own business.
Goodbye Davy Jones, I loved ya.
Kinni - you're "practically at home" here on E-S. Welcome!
Ya know, I had a bunch more written about "wicking" and decided to not put it out there - I didn't think anyone would give a flip.
re: Davy - he was cool man, all the way to the end.
