Why Wire Gauge Is Important
|Wire Use||Rated Ampacity||Wire Gauge|
|Low-voltage lighting and lamp cords||10 amps||18-gauge|
|Extension cords (light-duty)||13 amps||16-gauge|
|Light fixtures, lamps, lighting circuits||15 amps||14-gauge|
|Kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor receptacles (outlets); 120-volt air conditioners||20 amps||12-gauge|

What wire should I use for 12v?
When we install a 7-Way, we run the 12V power wire directly to the positive terminal on the battery with a 20, 30, or 40 amp auto-reset circuit breaker, like part # 9506P, 38630, or 9510. If you are using a 40 amp breaker you will definitely want to use 10 gauge wire.
