    Sroffe,

    I stand corrected, & I apologize for not wording it properly. You are 100% correct, as it is the amperage, not voltage, that must overcome the measure of the conduit's resistance, (gauge of wire), in relation to the amount of distance it is required to travel.

    End quote, that's it I'm done, lol, never meant to get into a pissing match anyhow, (guess I'm getting too old), but I just didn't want this guy/feller fisherman/person, to fry his/her system by using less than quality materials, about half way between here, there, & nowhere, especially on his 1st trip with a new trolling motor.
