12v parallel which most probably figured since you are using 12v batteries. So what is the concern here again?

Do you know why they shorted out in the first place? Putting everything back the way it was may result in the same situation happening again.

Let's see - the 2 gauge cables consist of - one neg chassis ground and one battery to battery neg. On the pos side one battery to battery, one pos to inverter, one positive from the bird, two positive cables to the two 200 amp circuit breakers (connected to the store/use switch) So six positive cables and three negative cables attached to the 12 volt batteries. My neg cables are marked with black shrink tubing and the pos cables have red shrink tubing.

Google 12 volt side of life

If you have not yet repalced consider going to GC-2 Six volt batteries which hook up differently.. Many reasons. I'll not go into

Assuming (As I will) that you already have yoru new 120 volt MARINE/deep cycle)

First step is to identify what wires are what on the RV.. This can be a problem if there is more than one HOT and Ground wire... Often the Negative wire will be White, but if they used heavier cable it may be any color.. Likewise often the positive wire is black, though again, it can be any color.. Black can also be negative.. Fun isn't it.

But you must identify.. IF the converter was not damaged and/or fuses not blown it will help you identify at least ONE hot wire.. That's a start.


Now hooking up the batteries
On the battery near one terminal is a PLUS sign, hook the post/terminal with that sign up to the other battery, Same sign And then to the HOT Wire the converter identified

On the other side there should be a MINUS sign (negative) Hook those together and to the line that goes to chassis ground.

Good luck .


Once you have identified all the HOt wires (Positive) paint them red please. and take a photo..

NOTE: If you install batteries backwards there are fuses that are SUPPOSED to protect the converter.... Sometimes they even do... But not always.
