Battery cables, where do they go

This should be general to all coachs, where do the cables go out of battery compartment.

I have the usual four-6V batteries in two pairs, four left to right. From P on far right I have two red cables going out of compartment. On far battery to Left (call it #1) there are two black cables leaving compartment. Where do these cables generally go....charger, generator, inverter, or directly into compartment with relays and breakers.

I also have a red cable coming of P of second battery on left (#2) so where possibly does it go.

I also have two small flat cable, a red and a black, to batteries #1 and #2 that I wonder where they might go.

This post is much like another I have but I hope more general to more readers coachs.

You might can tell I am pretty desperate for a fix to my ignorance.

Thanks for any advice.

On my 04 Horizon I only have the 4 large cables comeing off of the house batteries. One red goes through a 300 amp fuse to the inverter charger. one black also goes to the charger. the other black goes to the chassis/house ground. the red goes to the aux start solenoid and the batt disconect sw. then to the coach 12v system and Gen.

I'm sure you'd get some pretty good answers if you posted pictures of your setup.

The 2 black cables from battery #1 are probably ground cables going to the chassis frame rail. Perhaps one of them goes to the inverter input.
