Had a question, I'm in the middle of wiring
my boat for shore power
. I have the receptacle in, and from there the grounding wire then runs to a galvanic isolator
, and then I plan to put in a bus. Everything up to this point is 10-gauge wire. From there it'll branch to my circuit breaker, and to my engine's negative terminal. Should I use a 10-gauge or an 8-gauge wire from my engine
to the bus? On my DC circuit, it's an 8-gauge going from the battery
to the breaker, I assume this is because DC faults can create a lot of heat-inducing current
, but everything else on the AC circuit up to now has been 10, so it makes me curious.
