Would any electrically minded member answer this:

Is there any negative effect to adding extra, let's say 2meters, of cable into the existing installation?
Loss of circuit stability or anything like that?

Many thanks.

Not too much Marcin as i've put wires between 2 bikes etc before & also when i was doing some wiring on the Pan in my shed with parts on the bench & had no problems & that was about 10 feet away.

I think Crash will agree with me Marcin...its a bit vague.
A couple of metres of correctly sized cable ( sized for the load (amps) you are going to put through it ) connected to the battery with the correct fuse to protect the cable...no problem.

Adding extra cable at the far end of a circuit .. say adding extra lights from an existing light fitting..could be a big problem....when you turn them all on.

Sorry...that's what I get for answers in a rush...got a moment now.

Not adding anything, no extra load. Just extending cables to enable re-wiring of existing lights, switches etc - basically just extending cable length of existing circuit.

A bit of extra cable like that Marcin...no problem... as long as you ensure its the same size cable .

Roger that.

I have 16A / 12V specced cable. I'm guessing that'll be find with circuitry on Intruder?

Marcin you should always use at least the same size ( same amp rating ) cable as already in use in each circuit.

You can go bigger but never smaller.

No issue, as long as you get the correct amperage of extended replacement cable.  Extended additional cablel question for sparkies 3498837457

Cool...hence the 16A... that should be enough to - in worst scenario - go bigger than required but never smaller.

Correct?
Not sure if I should have answered the post though as I ain't no sparky, I have sort of electrocuted myself on a few occasions. Thankfully never killed myself or I wouldn't be here now, nearly wasn't a few times when I was younger.  Extended additional cablel question for sparkies 852880

I just happened to have my hand in exposed wall socket when my "friend" switched on the electricity.
