Default Relay

On a long run from the battery to the trunk should a relay be closer to battery or unit I'm powering? Couldn't find anything on google so maybe doesn't matter?

Yeah, my old man was telling me to put the relay close to the fuel pump and it does make sense. I priced 10 gauge wire at Lordco and what a rip-off ! I get this wire in its own sheath for 1/2 the price from a marine store.

Lordco was .84 cents a foot ina 50ft. roll, the stuff I bought works out to about .49 cents. Maybe the marine store had it sitting around for a while, but in general wiring and accessories are expensive.

price of copper is why it is expensive, the quality of what you are using is why there is such a variation in the price from place to place unless you are pricing identical items.

I'm sure you're right, I remember someone telling me about number of strands etc. making a difference.

Circuit breakers/fuses should always be closest to battery. Relays closest to the device its controlling
