extension cord for 12V wiring?
This is definitely in the DIY category, but since it is electrical I figured it fits here a bit better.
Is there any reason I shouldn't use extension cord (110V) for running 12V DC current? A certain gauge wire is a certain gauge, correct? I've got some cords that need retiring (12 GA, so plenty heavy) and am thinking that it would be perfect for supplying power to my overhead reading lights since the wires are so well protected already. The extra bulk doesn't really concern me as it will be running the perimeter of the roofline behind the frame members.
