I'm in the process of rewiring my boat
. Today I discovered that the cable to my Jabsco
is way too small. According to the manual I need to use AWG #8 cables
. My switch panel cannot handle that size cable.
So my thinking is to run a cable from the main busbar and use a standard mini relay to switch the pump
I'm now stuck on how to attach an AWG #8 cable to the relevant poles on a relay.
The pump uses 15A and requires a 20A fuse. To my knowledge, female spade terminals can handle up to #10 cable (6mm2). So I need some kind of socket where I can plug
the relay in and can handle AWG #8 cables
using ring terminals or some other method.
