Re: Fusing Batteries

If you are looking to upgrade the 4 gauge wiring, I recommend for custom battery cables. The quality and price are both excellent, and I used the savings to upgrade the cable gauge a bit (both batteries now connected to the switch with 2/0)

Note that although your starter is 75A continuous, there will be a surge of higher current to get the engine turning over. This is when voltage drops in the cable can be noticable if the wiring gauge (or connections) are marginal. BTDT.
