We show how we make large gauge battery cables cheap for our audio amplifiers and high amp alternator. In this Jeep, we have upgraded to a high output alternator, installed a 1,200 watt Skar Amp, and just needed larger cables to carry the current. Looking at heavy gauge wire we found that jumper cables are almost half the cost compared to jump buy heavy gauge wire so why not cut cost in our project.

Our video goes over why we went with jumper cables versus just buying raw wire for our high amp project. We show how to cut and strip the wire only using the cable cutters. You never want to strip more of the wire than you need, it is easy to measure so you won't have an issue with an electrical short.

The Wire Crimp Is Important

When crimping heavy gauge wire, a good cable lug crimper is a must. In the past, I have used a hammer to crimp wires, not a great solution. The hammer solution has cause cable terminations to fail, would not recommend this. Get a good set of cutters and crimpers, we have a link below to what we used.

Why Use Heat Shrink When Wiring

Heat shrink is very important for electrical cable installations, we highly recommend it. For smaller wires, we like to use heat shrink butt and wire connectors. Not only does it protect your wires from shorting out, but it also helps prevent your cable termination from being pulled out. For a jeep, boat, or anything else where the wire terminations may get wet, this is a must.

Wiring Off-The-Grid

Wiring can be very expensive and cutting costs for wires can leave more in your pocket, or you may be able to put it for better products. If in an RV to create that perfect boondocking rig, our in the ocean on your perfect off-the-grid sailboat. The wire you need can really eat up your budget and could turn your little slice of paradise into a hellish experience.

Why We Need Budget Wiring

Now I may be weird but I enjoy wiring most of the time. It requires a little more research than just changing parts, especially when working on improvements. We know the projects are going to get harder as my wife and I plan to move from our have to a liveaboard boat. We welcome the challenge of working to move completely of the grid and the challenges that will come.
