You are correct Mike.

AND although not the best tool for the job it's hard NOT to purchase one of these to throw in your bus for emergency field repairs for only $17.45. That's just cheap insurance.. I bought one... (had to.. sold my good tool to a fellow WOG member. hee hee hee)

Default cables

I would be interested in replacing my cables if the price is not too much. I have no idea how much cable a BMC uses so I guess that is difficult to determine even ballpark.

But I would like to be considered. I already had to redo one that they crimped at the auto part store and did not do a good job.

Don,
I put all new cables on mine this past spring and used about 60 feet of 2/0. Bluebird used 1/0 so I went one size bigger. I did use welding cable and I used a pair of rose bush hand trimmers and they cut very easily. I did both engine and coach battery's. Hope this may help in figuring cost. See you in September??

Don, I would be interested. It would be a great time to put in a couple of cut off switches also.
