Datel voltmeter/power outlet install help
I just received my Datel voltmeter, it will be install in a Rickland auxiliary shelf when I comes in but wanted to work through the wiring. I was going to run the voltmeter off the ignition wiring but have never done this so pointers would be great. This way the meter will be on when I turn on the bike. From what I can tell I need at least 16g wire and the connectors for the meter itself. Not sure which wires I need to strip to connect the voltmeter to work properly. Or if the ignition is the best circuit to leech off of. (as you can see I am a newbie in electrical work but have to start some where).
The power outlets I got from eastern beaver so they are all wired up with fuses so I was thinking about connecting them straight to the battery. Now I have my air horn already connected there too so that would be three extra connects on the battery, is this going to be an issue? Also should I worry about people plugging into the outlets (my baby sits outside) so should I do some other kind of wiring?
