While you are at it, don’t forget to include a fuse in the line. Like the
UDRCs that preceded it, the DRAWS board uses a diode across the input voltage
and ground for reverse polarity protection which simply explodes micro-seconds
before it fries the board unless you have a fuse. Ask me how I know. Ask Anna.
We’ve seen fire. As the saying goes: “It stops working when you let the magic

Thanks for the input. I am pretty much a rank amateur on the hardware
side of things. I've already managed loose an inch or more off the
pigtails trying to put some Anderson Power Poles on them. Hadn't occurred
to me to simply solder longer wires to the pigtails. I assume that I could
go to a larger gauge of wire which would allow me to have a somewhat more robust
termination to the connectors I want to try. That 28 gauge wire in the
pigtails is awfully fragile to a fumble thumbs like me.
If you have a part number for the pig tails and a source I'd appreciate
hearing more from you.

Be careful to get the right
polarity, to match the pins on the DRAWS board. We have seen some with
the black and red wires switched from what DRAWS is expecting.

BTW, pigtails are meant to be just that, a little solder and
shrink tubing and connect it to a longer cable with whatever connector you
like on the other end.

Does anyone have a source for the power pigtails for the
DRAWS? I'll likely need a few as I learn how to put Anderson Power
Pole connectors on the non-terminated end of the pigtail. The one I
got with the DRAWS is already getting too short as I fail my way through
to having enough experience and technique to achieve success.

Anyone have a lead on a longer power cable for a DRAWS?

sure there's something on Amazon, but I don't even know what to
call that particular connector.
