Recently I've noticed that the power line on the OPUS is getting extremely hot. I have 8 gauge running directly from the battery to the power connector that comes with the OPUS. The 8 guage doesn't seem hot at all, it's when I connect it to the like 12 gauge or so connector that came with the OPUS is where the problem begins. The white connector on the wires is also turning brown, from the heat I presume. I have a fuse on the 8 guage right before it connects to the OPUS and I measured my power draw with a multimeter and I'm only drawing 7 amps through the power lines.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and how can I fix this? Would replacing the 12 gauge wires going directly into the OPUS with 8 help and if so why doesn't the OPUS come with a lower gauge then?
Also, for some reason, my computer no longer survives crank. It use to stay on just fine when starting the car, now whenever I crank it, the computer stays on with fans and everythign buzzing, but it starts beeping, the display goes blank, and nothing works anymore.
