Battery hookup

Purchased 1988 Pace Arrow. Batteries missing and cables have been cut. Need to know how the batteries are connected before I purchase them. Thanks.

I suggest you contact Pace Arrow customer service and ask them.

It depends on if you want 6 volt or 12 volt and how many batteries.

Not sure. My first motorhome. It is in rough shape. Got it really cheap. Going to have to go through the entire vehicle from front to back. Going to be a project. Trying to find wiring diagrams. No luck yet. Thanks for the reply.

First, meassure your battery tray.
then look at the hold down bracket, can you tell how many batteries were there orig.

You know you want 12v total, up to you if you want series or parallel setup.

Bottom line is they must fit in the tray.

I did a google search and found 84 and 93 battery wiring diagrams for a Pace Arrow. Try "battery hookup for 1998 pace arrow".

This link will get you a download of an owners manual for a 99 pace arrow vision
Hmm...can't make the link work

Anyway, here are the URL's
fleetwoodrv.com/partsandservice/manuals/1999_pace_arrow_vision.pdf will get you a 1999 owners manual. If you change the 1999 to 1998 you can get a 1998 owners manual. Sorry that I can't make these work as links.

You may get better results posting your request in the Fleetwood Owners forum here on IRV2.

Please be careful with this job and figure out what problem the previous owner had before you hook anything up. If you have a direct short to ground on the hot side and don't fix it before you make connections you could be injured.
