For the wiring I would use 12 AWG for motor power (and ground!), the coil side of the relay can be wired with 14 AWG.
What is the plan for controlling them?
Thanks. Itís a little confusing as to what to do.

When you say ďthemĒ, does that indeed mean I should have one for each of the fans?

With the fans pulling 25amp, I thought Iíd need 8AWG..maybe 10AWG. Isnít 12 unable to handle that kind of draw? The fans are wired in series..

I have a probe and control unit that came with a kit.
