I'd just cut up an old cord off something or like an extension cord and use that wire. I think its ~16 gauge.

The ballast should have a schematic on it and that should indicated the wire gauge. If it does not I would go to the Icecap website and get information there. Use what ever they suggest.

nothing on the ballast, I even searched last night but couldn't come up with it. I looked, for fun, at what wiring hellolights sells, and it's 18 gauge wire, that just seems to small to me, and the wire on the ballasts is at least 14 guage from looking at it.

If you have a wire stripper, you can measure the guage.....

Had a few things arrive today. Sorry for poor quality, can't find the card reader for my camera, so this is from the phone.

Excellent!!

We had a good time on our trip today! Next time we will plan on doing the cook out. My wife has been under the weather with the sinus mess for a week or two and the heat and all the driving got to her.

I know the trip was well worth it for me!!!!!!!!

I just realized the largest thing you got today isn't pictured....??????

lol - shortly - it isn't out of the truck yet, and my pitiful little camera phone won't do it justice.
