My new minn kota 101 lb thrust trolling motor says I need a 50 amp circuit breaker and at least 8 gauge wire . Any ideas on where to get them ? I've tried Napa , Mars Electric , Ravenna Marine , Auto Zone and Home Depot .

I bought a book on marine elelctrical systems from West Marine. It stated not to use anything than marine grade elelctrical components. If you do, you risk your boat catching fire due to corroded parts. Household and auto electronic parts are not made for the marine environment. This is my book I'm reffering to.

You only need to be overly concerned about that when in a saltwater environment. It's not nearly as bad in fresh water.

Norton Marine was the winner . They had a few different options as well . It was my first time there and everyone I talked with was extremely helpful .
