Re: Elec-tricky-ty Dilema - Battery Wiring

1. Here's the 6V wiring stuff: Golf Cart batts re-positioning & wiring diagrams

2. Here's battery wiring ideas:

Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams This is a very good basic primer for boat system wiring: Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams

This is another very good basic primer for boat system wiring: The 1-2-B Switch by Maine Sail (brings together a lot of what this subject is all about)
1/BOTH/2/OFF Switches Thoughts & Musings -

3. Here's a lot of other electrical material, which includes the above:

Electrical Systems 101

4. Battery and other wire sizing: do a Google search, there are a lot of sources out there, or do a search on this board with "wire sizing" by "Maine Sail" - he's referenced a handy sizing website many times. I've used this, too: The West Advisor: Marine Wire

Good luck.
