I am adding four of these docking lights to my coach. I will have them painted to match the motorhome. I saw them mounted on a new RV at a recent RV show, and they looked like they could have been a factory option.

I will need to purchase roughly 200' of 14 gauge wire, as well as about 100' of the plastic corrugated type of wire wrap. Can anyone recommend a good place to buy this in bulk? Online or retail store...it doesn't matter.

Thanks!

Craig

Maybe the same place you are getting the lights. Marine supply houses usually sell wire. Home Depot would be cheaper, however.

Either Del City Wire or Waytek Wire should have what you need.

Actually found that Ryder Fleet Products is a little cheaper than these two but doesn't have quite the diversity in products. Their freight charges are pretty reasonable too.

You may be able to find both the wire and the loom through your local NAPA. They'll want to sell you what's in the store, but they can order it in from the area distribution center.


You can but my local NAPA, a very good auto parts store though, is very costly in comparision even using a commercial account discount compared to Del City, Wytek and Ryder Fleet Products.

If you find it at home depot make sure you are getting stranded automotive wire not solid conductor house wire.

Try amazon
