Size 10 wire is pretty big - it will probably be too hard to use. How many amps do you plan to use? The #10 wire is good for 30 amps - that's usually more than what a normal house's outlet can carry. #14 wire can carry 15 amps.

I have 5000W inverter & hooked up to my battery power supply.display is saying "l up" .i think it means lock up.i was wondering how to unlock.

Could it be L.U.P. it's really L.V.P. but the V looks like a U. If it is it's low voltage protection. If the incoming voltage drops below 10.5 volts, it begins to flash. If the voltage drops below 10 volts it shouts down. If you supply it with 12 v it should restart. If you don't have manual you can view/download one from
The low voltage could caused by low battery. Poor connetions. Wire too small for load being supplied.Inverters over 1500 watts will require #1/0 or larger cable, in the shortest possible length. NOTE: Cable size recommendations may vary among inverter brands and models; check the Owner's Manual for the model you purchase before you buy the wire for it.

Power hook up

This type of inverter has large alligator clips on it because the amperage that comes through a cigarette lighter is insufficient and can result in blown fuses and overheating of the socket. Hook this one up directly to the battery without splicing a longer wire to it.
