All right! palehorse89 has the white wires. I was hoping somebody had white wires going somewhere. While one never can tell for sure, white wires had better be on the ground side of the 12 VDC circuit.

Thanks guys, I finally connected the wires to the house batteries negative side. Reason I went house, was because the wires don't reach the chassis batts. There was also a fellow newmar owner at my rv park, happily showed me his battery tray. Only difference is that he had less wires in his bundle.

GaryKD that is an aero muffler, old one came apart. Had it installed locally and the shop did an excellent job...it does sound nice!

If they did reach the chassis batteries it would not have mattered if you hooked them up to negative post on chassis battery, ground is ground the world around.

When you are done getting them hooked back up and have verified they are right.. Go and get one (or two) of the following

Bottle of nail polish RED (Black)
Small can of Spray Paint (Testors?) Red (Black)
Small bottle of paint (Testors?) RED (Black)

(The 2nd bottle/can (Black) is optional in all cases except where there is a red wire hooked to the NEGATIVE terminl

Spry or brush RED on the positive cables
(Black on Negative cables)

Home is where I park it!
