12V Wire Gauge

I don't specifically know the guage of wire that Oliver uses.  But, I've always assumed that it is "standard automotive wire" that is normally 14 guage like THIS STUFF.

A quick call to Oliver Service would confirm this though.

Correct 14GA is the most common automotive wire gauge and would be fine for most OTT circuits. Sometimes they use lighter 16-18A for electronics. 12GA perhaps as a relay output, where you need higher amperage. All automotive/trailer wiring should be a stranded wire type. Only household wire is solid copper.
