I noticed in your video , you connected a large cable with RED shrink tubing to the LOAD side of your shunt. Why in the world would you post a video containing a potentially catastrophic error like that? A least take a sharpie and color it black if in fact it is a negative cable.

Please explain what am I missing?

Where in the video are you seeing that?

I've watched and re-watched the video 3 times this morning and don't see a red cable connected to the shunt.

You must have skipped the part from 5:38-5:42 [emoticon]

Watch the video again.... and look at 5:38-5:42 and at 6:13-6:17.

There's two cables connected to the load side of the shunt, both have black heat shrink - I can clearly see only two terminal lugs on that side of the shunt. I see one cable on the battery side of the shunt, it too has black heat shrink.

There is no cable with red heat shrink connected to the shunt.

The still shot I added at 6:18-6:21 also shows three black heat shrink cables on the shunt, so does the segment from 6:22-7:19.

Keep watching from 7:21-7:24 and tell me what happens to the loose and dangling positive cable with red heat shrink connected to it.

OK I see that the RED cable is not connected and only Black are connected To be honest I stopped watching your video after seeing what to me clearly appeared to be the red cable connected to the shunt.

I apologize for the confusion.

The cable was pointing straight up from the shunt. No idea how that would appear to have been connected to the shunt.

That cable was what I had originally routed from the battery box to the large fuse, when I was thinking I'd mount the fuse next to the shunt. That's why there's the other red cable laying to the left of the shunt - that was the other cable for the fuse.

I am custom making my own battery cables and crimping them with this awesome crimp tool.

This is how I'm making my battery cables then I apply the appropriate color heat shrink.
