    The fridge and solar is showing the right wire gauge - 6B&S. The first link doesn't say, and the 2nd link says 8B&S. So I wouldn't get either of those 2.

    Haha no problems, I like the idea of having Andersonís and just plug and play but might be wishful thinking!

    So for me it looks like the best solution is to have the setup as showing in the following image, this site was incredibly informative and very helpful if anyone plans on taking on a dual battery system project.
    I probably wont carry out the project for awhile.


    Instead of having the anderson located on rear of car have it located in back.

    The one final question I have is as he mentions in the quote below
    "All cable lugs used with the 6 B&S cable are far too big to be crimped with standard crimping tools, so they should be crimped by an auto electrician, or you can solder them if you have a gas torch, they do take a lot of heat to solder on properly."
    Any suggestions on the best way to go about this myself is buying a tool worth it or would it cost just the same to get an auto electrician to sort out the lugs?
    Also any more suggestions on if this is the best route to go or any tips let me know.

    Cheers,

    You could buy an Anderson Plug crimping tool off EBay for $17-$18. It's designed for larger lugs. Double your wiring back over in the lug prior to crimping for a mechanical strength fit. Even get two pairs of hands on the crimping tool when crimping if need be to add 50% more to your own strength.
