Battery Hook Up

I have a 2004 Dolphin 6355 LX, I have three batteries that are hooked up. two of them are 12 volt marine batteries which is for the house and the other one is a regular 12 volt battery used for the motor. These are located under the step on the inside. I had someone take them out and they are not sure how to hook them back up. Can someone send me a picture of the proper hookup or a diagram.
Thank you
Mark Strader

2003 Sea Breeze 1311 class A house batteries

We think our batteries may have been installed incorrectly, can someone tell us how they should be wired please. Diagram/description.
If ours are wrong and we change it will anything go wrong in making the change?
FYI: we had house batteries installed by a battery guy out of state, thought everything was ok, but now realize something is wrong (not the same as diagram on this thread) and not getting full juice and having to keep a battery tender on it.

Thank you

Describe your setup. Single 12v? Several 12v. 2x6v? 4x6v? 6x6v?

Like this. If things worked, they were correct. You need to keep them charged up between use.Click image for larger version

Two 12v house batteries donít sound right. You should have 2 6v wired in series for the house. Someone either changed them or you think they are 12v batteries.

Talking 2003 Sea Breeze 1311 class A house batteries

Thank you for sending the attachments (they are both the same) and my batteries are connected as stated. Now just have to make sure they are going to the right place on the board.

What do you mean by the right place on the board?
