Battery Connection Help Needed

I have a gas 2004 national seabreeze lx 8375 I need to know how to run my battery cables from the motorhome into 2 6 volt batteries and back to the motor home. What I mean is how to connect to the plus and to the minus and how to loop the two batteries. Thanks AL

Al....my advice....try to find someone with some battery electrical knowledge to help you. If you get it wrong, you may do dome serious damage.....maybe even a fire! Rook

All good information.. One more idea.. Google "the 12 volt side of life" . I fully agree that you should have some help from a mechanical/electrical person. Show your helper the wiring layout above.
