So you need to hook up the house batteries? Are you using 6 VDC batteries or 12 VDC batteries here?

Expert:  Randall replied 11 months ago.

There should be a cable between the positives of the two house batteries and one between the negatives. Then a negative cable to the chassis from those. The red positive should go up to the Battery Control center and hook up to the disconnect solenoid. Take a photo of the inside of that and attach a photo to your post. I can direct you further from that. You should be able to contract Fleetwood Customer Service at(###) ###-####and give them your FIN number and get a complete set of wiring diagrams for this. That would help here. I will watch for your post........all follow ups are included in our fee.
