Hi my name is Robert...

Below is a picture of how the main cables will go, these will be the larger cables, for the smaller wires if they are going to a fuse or breaker they will be positive, if they are going to ground they will be negative..... Hope this helps some.... Robert

below is another picture..... You can see that the main positive will go to one battery, the main neg. to the other and then they get jumper cables from pos-neg, think this one makes more sense....
