Can you show me, or tell me how the batteries should be

Customer Question
Can you show me...

Can you show me, or tell me how the batteries should be hooked up on the starboard (right hand side of a 1998 Holiday Rambler Vacationer) Thank you.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

No, I need to get a voltmeter. I just bought four batteries about three weeks ago. The water level was low in each battery. Once I get the batteries charged and generator back on line, how often such I run my generator?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '98 Rambler?

Vactioneer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Vacationeer

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Only filled up my batteries back up with distilled w/distilled water and I am going to change my oil filter a air filter oh the generator because it is filty
