Are the 2 house batteries 12 volt in parallel or 6 volt in series? I will put a meter on them and then label each cable.
Took a couple pictures of our 1996 Flair 29V with the Chevy 7.4L (454) engine.
Engine/Chassis Battery: 12V group 78 or group 34/78DT
-The Chevrolet chassis battery on ours is located under the hood, on the passenger side, right behind the headlights. The picture shows the factory side mount (red) booted battery cable, which runs directly to the starter motor.
-The second red cable attaches to the battery (+) positive terminal via a special bolt and brass nut. The cable then leads to a RV Custom battery engine disconnect latching relay. Located on the drivers side near the Fleetwood fuse box.
-The battery ground cable starts at the battery (-) negative terminal and bolts to the chassis frame.
The negative cable, on our coach is hidden below the battery, and is hard to see even when laying under the coach.
Coach/House Batteries: 6V group GC2, deep cycle batteries
The Fleetwood House batteries on our coach are under the hood, mounted between the frame rails. The picture here is hopefully worth a thousand words.
-On our coach the passenger battery (-) negative terminal goes to the chassis frame ground. It actually goes to the same bolt at the engine battery.
-The battery interconnect cable only
goes between the two deep cycle batteries, to achieve 12 volts. That cable runs from the passenger side battery (+) positive terminal to the driver side battery (-) negative terminal.
-The battery positive cable is on the (+) positive terminal on the driver side battery. It runs up to a RV Custom battery house disconnect latching relay.
