Yes, folks are just trying to help you create a safe, efficient setup... Accidently drop a tool across all those knife switches & the sparks will fly! Also, the wires are too small to handle the amps possible from (4) 6V batteries... IMO you need to see a good (4) battery installation on a MH & use that as your build guide... Much heavier 12V wires are used, fuses, and everything absolutely secured so that a fender-bender does not cause a fire...
I have a good understanding of DC voltage from my RC aircraft & Ham radio hobbies... DC can push the amps & do a lot of damage so it's important to always use fuses immediately after the batteries, install heat shrink tubing over bare wires, etc. You need to be SAFE around DC w/amps just like 110V AC... It can kill ya...
However, I also still have a lot to learn when it comes to RV applications. As I am planning to install a residential fridge powered by an inverter, I had no idea I would need to consider using welding cables for the DC side until I read these forums... So I plan to gather as much info from others on these forums before I finalize my build plans.
