    8b&s will be large enough to run the Waeco cf50. Maybe Iíll leave the fridge wiring in place and from the new feed to the trailer, splice a new 6b&s feed to the compressor.

    Is there a reason why I canít use thick welding cable instead of standard automotive cabling? I find welding cable more flexible

    While welding cable is exactly the same size and current carrying capacity as automotive cable, there is the cost difference.

    The D4 is so easy to run cable through that it really is unnecessary to use welding cable but doing so will not harm anything.

    Agree. In my case it was curve radius on some areas where it came into its own.
