As far as wire termination there is no better site than this: Marine Wire Termination Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at
Thanks man, you rock.
Another question. On deep cycle battery terminals, you have two spots to connect connectors on each terminal, a fat one like on a car battery and a small one to attach with a nut.
You have an incoming charging run, and an outgoing load run. Can both of these be on the same spot on the battery terminal, just stacked on top of one another, or is there any reason to separate them and put say the charging on the small bit and the load on the big one?
