    • Pretty much Suburban, Dometic  AtWood  Are the main RV furnaces out there.  
    • This all you should need. I used similar wire in my house and it has been fine for five years now
    • So some of you guys have offered some great info about building houses and picking good, reliable, quiet furnaces for them.  I searched a little bit got too many non-relevant results so I’m asking what ya’ll would recommend?   I have an AirExcel but am ready to change it out.  I’m sure it’s a pretty cheap unit.  I know Suburbans are common but there was another type I read about before that doesn’t have as much blower noise.   Thanks
    • Welcome to HSO @Garmin Nuvi. Your post sounds kind of spammy. If you're for real, message me and we will let you link to your safe site.
    • If all you're running are lights and the furnace, a 15A circuit would be more than adequate, which would be 14ga. The wire lengths involved are minimal so voltage drop should not be a concern.
    • Uni knot I use for all the time for leaders braid and fluoro. No glue needed
    • Standard auto/trailer lights, clearance, signal, break etc. use 16AWG wire. There based on 13.8vdc (altimeter charging voltage) with a 5% volt loss for wire length. Inside your Yetti, the greatest 12vdc current draw will be your furnace, 35,000 BTU suburban draw 9 amps. Fishing electronics (FL-8 205ma, FL-28 275 ma, camera 300ma, 12v TV 480ma) 1000ma = 1Amp. Use LED lights, the draw about 20% current compared to iridescent lights.If you decide to use a 12vdc to 120vac converter to charge your auger batteries, I suggest you direct connect the converter to your battery with wire and clamps provided.  Wire size calculator to help decide what you need https://www.wirebarn.com/Wire-Calculator-_ep_41.html
    • Voltage drop needs to be considered as well that is the only reason why I am thinking of just going with 12 AWG. I was just thinking of buying a roll each of red and black stranded THHN for 12VDC but curious if that be a bad idea and should use something like a marine type cable but that seems over kill?  https://www.amazon.com/American-Tinned-Oxygen-Copper-Sheathed/dp/B0799HTZB5/ref=mp_s_a_1_12?keywords=marine+cable&qid=1580136110&sprefix=marine+cable&sr=8-12
