    Voltmeter wire can be itty bitty stuff. Theyre wired in parallel with the load or source (ie battery) and draw almost no current.

    Ammeters are wired in series with the load so must be rated for, and wired for, the full expected load. So ammeters usually have much larger wire.

    Oh I see what your asking. I was only asking for the Voltmeter circuit, thanks. Any ground will do for the Voltmeter? Will any hot work? I just need to sense the Voltage from any point in the electrical system that is always on when running?

    Yes. Connect to switched power for the positive and the negative to any decent ground.
