The battery on my Excalibur is difficult to access. As a result, I want
to bring a wire from the positive side of the battery to a more
accessible location so I can hook a battery maintainer to it easily.??
That wire will have an in-line fuse, but I need to terminate it with a
plug/connector that will not expose the hot connection to any sort of
ground.?? Does anybody have a suggestion about what sort of connector
would be appropriate?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Bill

Hi Bill,


I'm usually a KISS kind of guy (except when it comes to music). Unless
you're planning on start-cart level current, I'd use something like
this, which is mfgr'd into many charger wiring harnesses:
https://www.amazon.com/Sea-Dog-Polarized-Connector-2-Wire/dp/B000Y89TDM/ref=asc_df_B000Y89TDM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312430092407&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4395166586976378804&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9013892&hvtargid=pla-569344392136&psc=1

The exposed black pin would be the ground for the a/c electrical system,
and the connector can just be tucked out of the way when not in use. The
exposed red pin on its mate would be fed by the charger, and shouldn't
get powered until the connectors are mated. The q&a for that particular
product indicates that the wire size is anything from 14 to 18 gauge
(depending on who answers), but even 18 gauge should handle plenty of
current from a slow charger.

There are better, and much more expensive options; what are your goals?

All my chargers output positive on the charger pin that is not exposed. 
That means that the exposed aircraft pin would be positive.  One could
reverse this but that's asking for trouble down the road when a
different charger is available away from home etc. I use a cigarette
lighter receptacle that happens to be on a manually switched hot buss. 
Not ideal but it works and for other reasons I wanted one hot lighter
receptacle available even if the battery contactor was open.
