I'm being lazy, help me please -wire sizes

So I know I can figure out all the data with formulas and such, but hoping to take the lazy and easier approach by simply asking and hoping someone already has done the work for me.

Starting from scratch on the 12v and 110 circuits. 12v system, does anyone know what stock wire gauge was for:

Lighting circuits:
Power feed from fuse panel to univolt:
Battery to fuse panel:
Stove vent fan/ceiling vent fans:
Brake wires/exterior trailer light wires:
12v outlets:
Water pump:


Thanks for your help. As far as load plan, I hope to run the forward lights on one fuse, the rear lights (including bathroom) on another (not so much on load, but rather still having lights if a problem occurs). One fuse for roof fans etc, one for 12v outlets, one for refrigerator feed, and one for water pump.

Any leads on wire in different colors in longer lengths for good prices would be appreciated as well.

thanks!

Scott.

Using 10 gauge wire will satisfy those circuits. For all the battery circuits you can use 8 gauge.

When wiring anything, a larger size than needed, never hurts a thing.

You can get 100 foot spools in various colors at Home Depot.

Thanks Andy. I'll swing by there and see what they have. I had figured 12 for lights etc but 10 would certainly remove all doubt of wire size.
