At this point I would sit down and do some math on what you plan to run on this because that will determine the amp load on the system and that in turn will determine the wire sizes and fuses you want on there. ----------------6 gauge?Which is pretty thick and expensive. This is not to say "I know what you need." I'm just throwing numbers around to illustrate a point. From this I hope you can do the math and size your own system and do it safely.

Assuming you can get 5 hours of full sun per day, which might take some periodic repositioning of the panels depending, that's about 1 kWh of power on a sunny day. A 5 A (60 watt) frig with a 50% duty cycle will use about 72% of that solar power alone. No idea if that duty cycle value is accurate, just adding up some of the power requirements for the 6 items in the first post and it looks to be over what the panels alone can provide (depending on how many hours a day of use).
