Dave explains it so much better than I

Yeah, don't forget to put a fuse inline, or breaker, on the power feed to the aux fuse block like Dave mentions. Like I mentioned, my setup is overkill but I'll never have to redo it

Question I guess for Dave...If a person only needs 10ga wire but chooses to use say 8ga, or 4ga, or even 2ga, there isn't any "risk" in doing so right? Other than wasting the $$ on the more expensive cable/wire I guess .

In my case I planned to power my CB and HAM, plus some DC power outlets (for the fridge etc.) off the aux fuse block and I wanted the cleanest power I could get without taking stuff all the way up to the battery. So I figured go big on the power cable to fuse block would help insure clean power...It will be REAL overkill when I get my second battery installed and the power run to the fuse block gets even shorter
