mitiempo, Genuinedealz looks perfect--thanks for that! And thanks to you and Zanshin for the size calculators--I'll definitely put those to use as I figure my new setup.
From one of the charts at Genuinedealz, I see that my .62 in. OD mystery cable is likely AWG 0, which is currently used from switch to starter and from #1 batt positive to switch lug "1". I'll be studying a book on electrical systems, but would anyone care to give me a headstart on why a lesser cable can connect two batteries in parallel than is needed to, say, go to the starter from the bank? I get that the starter is a big draw, but does this mean that less current is flowing between the batts than is flowing out to the starter placing the demand?
