A Closer Look (Cont’d)

The main wiring harnesses measure 19-1/2′ long to the first connector and are covered with a silver braid shield and clear plastic mesh sleeving.  The sleeving job is excellent but the cables are rather stiff and don’t flex easily.  Using the included cable ties (and/or your own wire ties) will help hold the cables in place and minimize side-loading stresses placed on the connectors once the cables are routed.
