Default Re: 4 gauge Cable Set for converted Precedent

So I'm probably gonna have scotty make me a set a cables..

Regarding the cable that runs through the OBC... can I just run a #4 wire from the controller around the OBC and to the battery while leaving the #6 wire running through the OBC connected?..

i would advise not to do this. the obc measures Ah consumed through this hole. partially bypassing this sensor throws off the computer's measurements vs what is actually consumed resulting in less than optimum charge routines.

Yes, leave the #6 going through the OBC and connect it as it is and all the #4's as they should go. So, the battery terminal with the #6 to the OBC will also have a #4 on it also.

You need to find the rest of your receipts. A pound of Silver solder is $25 and a tin of flux is $4..... Propane torch map gas has a tag on it too.... LOL
I hate to tell you this but any controller 500amps and up require 2g cables. A 700 amp controller definitely falls into the 2g cable set group.
