Mine were all mixed up when I got my coach. I just removed the cables and traced them back to determine which battery they had to be connected to . I connected the cables one at a time and then used a voltmeter to determine their other end / use. I had the following cables : starter , leveling jacks , generator / house power , house to boost solenoid , chassis to boost solenoid , chassis aux fuse block.

Twinboat nailed it. Follow the large positive wire from the starter. It should lead you to the starting battery. On the way, you might find the disconnects or boost solenoids which you'll need to test later. The other reason to tie the batteries in parallel is to charge the chassis battery when the BIRD dies.

Take note that engine battery terminals are: Pos. Bottom right Neg. top right
Battery was turned around to provide access to side terminals for emergency engine jump starting.

I'm very keen to see a pic of the 1990 Fleetwood Southwind batteries with the engine and house batteries on their separate circuits but also with that connection for charging.
I hoping to identify my house battery wires and connect them to the two new 12-volt batteries. Following the previous owners connections, which weren't working didn't connect them and caused problems.
Maybe someone can tell me which go where from the pic. 😊😁
