I'd like to know what kind of wire I should use? Does a stranded copper wire, 12 AWG could be OK?

man that welders wire is nice stuff use it for batt cables etc extra flexable more strands per inch than any wire sold at marina or auto ........ nice stuff used it in a commercial fishing boat never had to change it
