Battery House Connection 99 dolphin 35 v10

Battery Connection 1999 dolphin 35 v10, I replaced the old batteries with new ones ,connected negative on one joined that positive to negative on the other and that positive ran back to the control panel ,all was the same as when i took it off ,then another red lead coming from the control panel was attached to the positive on the engine battery, However as soon as i did thisand started the engine the positive on the control panel battery connection started heating up..with the old batteries, one was really bad and i think maybe there was a problem before i got the coach , i have also noticed that before there was a burn mark on the control panel diodes .., another change was that they had wired up the hot water to run on gas and electric......

You may have had 6 volt batteries and now have 12 volt ones.

Did the old ones have 3 or 6 caps ? 3 caps is 6 volt.

Give us the brand and model of your new batteries. 12 volt batteries don't hook up the way you described.
