The batteries are no problem, but I need a photo of the other to give you that. Is that a possibility? You can attach it to your post or we can do a $9 phone chat and you can text it to me.

Are the two batteries 12 VDC or 6 VDC? And are you talking about the shortstop breakers up behind the batteries? See the attached photo link. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=shortstop+breaker+photo&id=8D4939A7F0965679E3E29C89B963B0D9C24CDC15&FORM=IQFRBA

No. I was on a phone chat with another customer.

I need to know if you have 6 VDC or 12 VDC batteries. And are you talking about the shortstop breakers? Did you look at the photo link I sent before?

I​ believe we can solve this over a phone chat. $9 for a call to my shop and no time limits. On this sort of problem it is a lot faster. Not all these are wired up the same and without any diagrams I need to know what exactly you have.

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 3 months ago

A photo would show that.

I​'d like to help you and I have an RV repair shop and do this for a living, but without some information from you I can't do much. There are no wiring diagrams for these and there are all kinds of configurations on Montana 5th wheels.
