[quote=corsair23;156369]Dave explains it so much better than I
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
There is no risk with using a wire gauge larger than your minimum requirements as long as the lugs in your fuse block can accomodate it. The risk is when people start using larger fuses than what the wire size is rated for. Then the wire becomes the fusibile link and the risk of fire increases.
