Any thoughts would be great! thanks!
Hello Big Bear,
The Umbilical Cable I use has 1/8, 2/10, 4/12 gauge. Example: https://www.anythingtruck.com/product/595-3329.html
Mine is black, I got it from a friends shop. I am not sure you need 10ga but they are out there.
Since you are rewiring. you might also consider a HD round pin 7-wire plug and socket, https://www.anythingtruck.com/product/595-3329.html
IMO, A few advantages over the flat blade style plug and socket. Sturdier, the -NEG ground makes connection first, more solid connections, seems to be more corrosion resistant, perhaps a little more security - not everyone has one.
