My questions are: is 15A enough and if so what gauge wire would you recommend? The distance to the battery is less than 12".
I should clarify: I know the 15A fuse is OK for the Gerbings but I'm not sure about what an air compressor would need.
I've got a 15A in mine, powers a compressor or vest no problem. 18 ga or bigger should be fine.
