Re: Rewiring Mast. What Gauge?

14 is a bit large 18 would be more than enough. remember the fuse or breaker is sized to protect the smallest wire in the circuit not the device at the end of the wire. so if the leads supplied on the LED are smaller then #16 wire you need a breaker sized for the smaller size wire.
