Re: Color wire for series connection
Anytime I connect to a positive, I use red, no matter where it goes.
I've seen some battery installations w/the yellow and I just plain do not like it. Black won't discolor or fade. It's a good color for negative, just like green is a good color for ground. I've always dreamed of building a boat that has every single wire color coded and no two wires aboard are the same color. Imagine how easy it would be to identify a wire you find running behind the ceiling or the overhead.
If someone is so colorblind they can't tell red from black, then perhaps they have no business doing electrical work, just like those who can distinguish red or green can't get licensed as a captain. Sometimes one must play the cards they are dealt.
