Going to go with the AV-30 as a back up to the dual GX3s. I know several folks using the AV-20 and since I have a bit more panel I’ll go with the larger one.
Panel underway now. Looking forward to putting this bird back together.
By the way.
Rick Hole, do you remember building me a wing for the TriQ200?

Just a reminder, wire size for both power and ground is determined by the breaker or fuse protecting that circuit, not by the expected load.
In the event of a short circuit the wire must conduct high current until the breaker or fuse interrupts the circuit without overheating.
For an extreme example, consider if the load were a 10 mA LED pilot light connected to a 10 amp breaker circuit. A short at the LED would result in (more than) 10 amps flowing through the wire. While it is tempting to think we could use perhaps a 24 or 26 gauge wire, plenty good for 10 mA, that wire would glow red hot before evaporating with the possibility of causing other nearby wires’ insulation to melt and a cascade failure result. Or an in-flight fire. Hence the wire must hold up for the trip current long enough for the breaker/fuse to blow.

What size wire did you use for the install?
Will I see you in September? No song lyrics intended.
