Does anyone have a diagram for the house batteries?
Thanks

Tony, Welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of you adventures and experiences. Check out the following fo rhelp with battery wiring: http://www.dcbattery.com/faq.html#1
If you have four 6 volt batteries put two in series, (+ to -) and the other two 6 volt batteries connected the same way (+ to -) where these are connected together + to + and - to -. You want two banks totaling 12 volts tied parrallel to each other. The total of all four will still only produce 12 volts to the cable leaving this area and feeding the house.

I appreciate your reply and it is good information.
My problem is where to attach the 4 cables that go to the batteries from the inside of the motorhome.
Thanks
Tony

Tony, if you have four cables two are probably to chassis ground and the other two would be B+. Ohm out the cables and the chassis cables will have 0 ohms of resistance to the chassis. The other two would have a higher resistance and these would be connected to the 12 volt + post of the battery bank.

Four wires? Is it possible you have a pair of cables for the chassis battery and another pair for the house batteries?

Or maybe one set of cables runs to an inverter and the other to a 12 volt house power system?
