Now, two more questions: how exactly did you connect to the positive battery terminal, and where did you get the line connector/plug assembly?
1) These are the housings, the boots, covers, and even the handle, etc.
I did not find this place until AFTER I did mine.http://www.powerwerx.com/anderson-power ... using.html
This place is one-stop shopping.
Please note that the correct color for 12VDC is YELLOW.
2) Here are the loose contacts.
You will need 4, and they are sized by wire gauge.http://www.powerwerx.com/anderson-power ... ntact.html
I used a big hydraulic crimper on them.
I have seen others use impact crimpers, and I guess you could "solder" them if you had to.
If you are planning on making an "Extension Cable" to get the unit out of/Away from the vehicle, then order the extras that you will need.
Here is a picture of the Hot connection.
With the breaker tripped, I only have the approx. 3" of hot sticking out.
I dremelled (sp?) a slot in the cover until it closed again.
