The relays are for horns, wipers stuff like that now there are solenoids that disconnect the power to the batteries. Then there is a battery isolator that will have a feed from the alternator a pos which would be hot when the key is on and two leads one going to the house the other going to the chassis post a picture of what your looking at.
