I've got a Fluke 77 DMM, so as long as I can get a good connection I can
read that.  Thanx!

It is pretty low resistance, 12 volts / 10 amps = 1.2 ohms, 4 in parallel =
0.3 ohms, you 
need a good meter to read that low a resistance accurately.  Could check for
voltage drops 
along the bus bar with the plugs on.
