Ancor Marine Grade Duplex Wire https://amzn.to/30bsQ9C
Ancor produces excellent marine grade wire. It is double insulated and fully tinned. I use 12AWG flat duplex wire for all of the 12 Volt DC applications in the van. Please see my video on wire size!
Heat Gun https://amzn.to/3o9KKSe
If you do not have a heat gun you need one! It has many uses – applying heat shrink when making electrical cables, bending acrylic, removing labels, removing van ribs and more…..
Wire strippers https://amzn.to/2Ypqcwl
You will need a good pair of wire strippers. Having taught electronics for years, I have several.
TEMCO wire https://amzn.to/3qSzlaE
TEMCO provides wire and solar cable. Made in the USA, this is high quality ultra flexible cable.
Solar cable is different. It will not be as flexible as other wire. Solar panel wire must have UV resistant insulation. If standard type electrical wire is used on the roof of your van the suns UV radiation will destroy the insulation on the wire. This may cause an electrical short, and possible solar panel failure.

US Wire Extension cord 12/3 https://amzn.to/3qeEr2s
For the AC power in the van I used a heavy duty extension cord for wiring. This was more cost effective than buying bear wire.
12 Volt Fuse Block https://amzn.to/3o5U8X2
A 12 volt fuse block is needed to supply the different amperage fuses for your DC loads.
