I have two aux batteries that are wired to my inverter, one foot runs. Each has a 150a 12v automotive CB to the feed. I used 4g solid core. In installing stuff I shorted the lead on one battery and just about welded the battery terminal clear off. It didn't trip the CB. But that is the rating, 1500W peak.
I put a 200a fuse in the crank battery's fuse box because I thought that is what factory was. 4g wire between Aux and crank. I don't think that stuff will ever blow.
