Default Second Battery...4 Gauge?

I am about to install a second battery in my van as soon as it ships. I was curious if I could run 4 gauge wire since I am on a budget and have 100 ft of it in the garage. Also if so what size fuse should I use in-line to the battery?

It will be powering an SAX-1200D and 50.4

You can use the 4g, but I would do 2 runs simply because you have enough.

You'll want to have a 150a (or less) fuse at each battery on each positive wire.
