Portable solar install Q. How flexible is 8/2 a cord?
I am planning on putting together a 200w - 12v portable solar system for my motor home. I want to go about 30 feet. My primary camping site is in the shade, so I need to move out that far. The wiring tables indicate needing 8awg wire. So I'm looking at getting a 8/2 SOOW cord and using Anderson 50a connectors. Is this going to be a reasonable outdoor cable? Meaning will it hold up, will I be able to coil it up and put in storage with the panels or will I hate it?
