Reconnecting batteries ACE

Iím reconnecting my 2 house batteries according to the wiring diagram that Thor sent me. Unattached to shore power, should there be sparking?

Do you have the "Use/Store" switch in the "Use" position? If you do you would probably get some sparking as things such as CO2 detectors and a few other things like radio memory will draw current as soon as you start to attach the wires. Good luck.

The things like co2 detectors will draw current regardless of the USE/STORE switch position.

So yes, some small sparking will occur regardless just like when you connect your car battery.

There should be no heavy sparking (and there won't be any for very long if things are connected incorrectly).
