Stolen Battery
« on: May 08, 2014, 06:07:45 PM »
I own a 2012 Coachman Viking pop-up camping that someone decided they need the battery from it more than I did. They cut the battery wires about 2 feet down from the battery box and stole the battery. My question is what gauge are the 2 wires and if I'm not mistaken there was a fusible link on the red wire. Can anyone advise?

If you go with the 10 gauge , you will wish the rest of your life that you had taken your time with a baseball bat .

Cut a small piece more and visit your local wire source, since you have to replace the full length anyway. You don't want to start splicing pieces in.  Get copper stranded wire but it won't be cheap!!! Hope your insurance covers the theft.

I believe that the "fusible link" you refer to was a circuit breaker.
