    Just keep in mind that you need to take more spares on your trips if you use all the different colours. I use grey only.

    Daryl, the plugs are a bit different as in that the pole between the pins change and do not allow interchangability, some are square, others might be right angled and there might be other shapes but this is where you need to look to be able to fit your plugs together.

There was an article in one of our local 4X4 magazines a couple months ago where a 'standard' was proposed/discussed which made a lot of sense, ie:

    Blue - Solar into the controller
    Red - Power into the battery
    Grey - Power from the battery
    Yellow - Not mentioned
    Green I have seen some time ago, last 15 years not seen any more.

    I use the above colour coding.

    My personal experience;
    Used Grey BH and it cost me a battery, plugged into the wrong place and cooked it
    Then swapped to Red BH, got to a spot with no power and for some unknown reason my panel stopped working - chap helped me out but he had Blue BH on his. Had to break the Red BH to use the panel. Most of the guys at the site all used Blue BH for solar input.

    Got back home and started the above coding

    Red BH apparently for alternater input as on the NL power boxes (or gen set 12V input??)
    Grey for Load
    Yellow BH - no idea

    We keep it simple.
    Grey for out red for in.
    A short cable with grey on the one side and red on the other side to convert an extension cable.
    If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right. SJ
