Well I'm an electrician but don't mess with dc that much and on a house your stove gets a 50 amp line but your lucky if your wiring inside the stove is rated for 30 not sure how they get away with it but they do. Most of your appliances are like this. This is why I was wondering if I just run my # 6 to the leads on the recept I should be ok
The biggest difference in AC and DC in relation to sizing wire is voltage drop.
Voltage drops quick on DC. 2 feet of wire can often mean going the next wire size up which is why you have #6 from the battery to the trolling motor. If your battery was right by your trolling motor you could get by with alot less.
The 10 gauge leads on the device are fine in this case. You've already got the proper voltage to that point.
In this particular case, the distance is the main driving force of that 6 gauge wire size wire size, not the amperage.
this is what i was thinking but didnt know if i was right my batts might be three feet max from my motor. Thanks for the help.
