Years ago when i had to replace a battery in the shop van. I bought a new one and put it in. Hooked up the positive lead and then the negative, as soon as I touched the negative, it sparked tremendously. Long story short. Battery was charged/labeled backwards, Had to replace the alternator after that.

I still think it's ground related.... In over 30 years in trucking 90% of electrical problems were traced to a bad ground.

Well weekend after next my coach is going into the shop to have the wiring done. I found that after 4 leads that go on the possitive side 2 make it spark. So its at least in down that far, I just can't run them down without a ohm meter. Couple other minor electrical issue's I will have fixed while I am in there. I did however talk to the original mechanic who worked on it and said if he'd a had the battery in there while he was working on it he would of fixed the problem but gave me some good advice and was right. He did tell me he went through the over all mechanic's of it and said its in outstanding shape for the year, mechanicly sound motor and tranny. oh well we will see.Thanks for all the advice.
