I know there is a lot of advice out there with tips about certain things that should be done when installing a mobile rig, but I was wondering if anyone could give me any specific feedback about my new (and first, if you don't count the HT) mobile installation and if anything seems glaringly wrong or could be improved. The radio I'm using is a new Yaesu FT-1900R (max current draw is 11A on highest power of 55W, but I plan on using the lower power modes and just listening most frequently). I used 12 gauge stranded copper wire to connect the rig directly to the battery, and about 6 inches from both battery terminals I have ATC blade fuse holders with 15A fuses installed. I soldered all connections and wrapped them in multiple (5+) layers of good quality electrical tape. The wires themselves are enclosed in that ribbed plastic flexible tubing from a few inches from the fuses into the cab, through an existing hole that was originally plugged with a rubber stopper just under the drivers side dash. Once inside, I managed to fit the wires and tubing under the plastic molding along the drivers side floor boards, where it comes out and is secured under the seat to the center console (just a removable plastic cooler with cup holders, basically), where the radio is mounted. The wires come from the tube and terminate in a power connector that connects directly to the pigtail coming from the radio. Total wire length is about 8 feet. The antenna is a 3/4 wave 2m antenna magnetically mounted to the center of the roof of the minivan (I know mag mounts aren't ideal). The antenna feed goes out through a back window (the type that only cracks open as a vent, and is rarely opened). My concern comes into play since the rig itself isn't actually grounded, and I read online that some people recommend fuses at the radio as well. The radio's manual says nothing of grounding the chassis or anything like that, and I'm wondering if that's okay. The wire gauge and fuses I used fall right in line with what the manual recommends. Also I know the antenna situation could be improved, and I'd take suggestions on that as well, although I'd really rather not drill any holes.
