    This is all calcultated using ohms law. It states that "Voltage times amperage equals wattage". That can be reversed as well, by dividing. So if you have a tail light curcuit with 2, 15watt bulbs running on the same fuse, it would total 30 watts for that curcuit. 30watts divided by 6 volts equals 5 amps.

    Next the wire.size. It is determined by the amperege, not the voltage. The chart.for that reads something like this:

    30 amps.= 10 gauge wire.
    20 amps = 12 gauge wire.
    15 amps = 14 gauge wire.
    10 amps = 16 gauge wire.
    5 amps = 18 gauge wire. I hope this helps. ...J.D.

    Cheers, Wire Wheels, put this here so I can find it.

    Wow
    You all gone krazy. Get back for your meds. But great helpers there. By the time I check out all these web pages I will have retired. Only three years to go.
    Regards
    Joe.
