    I'm on the same battery for two years now. 6 volt. I just have to keep the wires duct taped to the barrel. The slightest little gap and they peel the wire and tape off. The squirrels seem to like the wire, too.

    At the motor, I use wire ties to snug the wire as close as possible.

    Who cares
    Very nice set up, and I like the coon cable. I'll try it out and see if it works. Usually a normal battery for me lasts for about 2 month, by that time, I am ready to put more feed back in to the feeder.
