No cable comes with the rotor.  You get a connector for each end of the 

Conductor size required depends on how long your cable run is between 
the controller and the rotor.  I have the smaller GX1000, which uses 
five conductors, two of which run the rotor and three that indicate 
position. The two that run the rotor need to be beefy enough that the IR 
drop is not excessive.  My run is 350 ft, so I'm using #14.  #18 would 
work fine for a 100 ft run.  The conductors sensing position can be much 
smaller -- they are reading the position of the tap on a 500 ohm pot.  
As I recall, the 2800 uses six conductors. Study the schematic to figure 
out what you need.
