Re: Power cable conductor gage (AWG) of

Also, keep in mind it's not just the cable thickness by itself. The length of cable is also part of the equation (as well as if it's in a bundle, underground, if it's double insulated, etc.).

If you have a long cable run, you will need a thicker cable.

The advice of checking the voltage drop with a multimeter is a good way of checking it. Check it under the load conditions such as with motors running, dew heater on max and camera cooler on max during initial warm-up all at the same time.
