'62 Rewire

Hey all, We are getting close to wiring. I've done a good bit of reading and I'm thinking of going with Marine grade 10AWG Ancor Marine Grade Duplex for all my runs to my 12v stuff, (12AWG for short runs.

Then running 12AWG Ancor Marine Grade Duplex for all my 110.

Already have 7 strand trailer cable running front to back for all the trailer lights etc.

Any help or tips diagrams etc. are appreciated!

Depending on what loads are on each circuit should determine the wire size. You may not need 10 awg on all your 12 volt runs. I assume you know heavier guage is needed for the main circuits: batteries/shore power/main breakers. I put together the following list in preparation for wiring our Overlander. Hope it helps.

I do agree with the decision to use marine grade wire. I used it through out for all circuits.

You can do both the 120 and 12v with 12awg. That Anchor Marine grade stranded is thick and tough to pull through existing holes. Get a stepper bit and plenty of plastic insulators for the holes in the ribs.
