Sailingdog - "will be drawing about 59 amps" Agreed. I'd thought of that but figured that running just a laptop or coffee pot wouldn't get anywhere near 59A. Your response however, made me realize that I'd be wasting the inverter capacity wiring to a 30A or 15A fuse. Good catch, I'll just have to make sure that I properly size the fuse and cable to the batteries. The cable run will be about 7' taking into account proper routing.
