I am going to install a battery disconnect on my TT.  Do I need to get a 2 gauge or a 4 gauge cable.   Running 30amps.

Four will be sufficient.  What is the original gauge?  Many are only 10 gauge.

30 Amps is the 120 VAC side. You can pull a lot more than that on the 12 VDC side.

I use 4 gauge cables which is good for more than 60 amps DC.
