After replacing my old battery’s, notice all cables were black. So I bought a red wire loom and placed it over the Positive cables. Now I know which is which.

However they didn't have any positive negative mixed in

I use black and red good quality tape on the ends of cables when there are several to make future battery exchanges

Attacges from the coach frame to positive battery post.
That's not a good joke if you were joking. If you weren't joking, that was a very bad answer.

And that's not what I said. I said it looks like a positive cable and to trace it down to see where it goes.

Anyway, the OP hasn't signed back in since the 17th. I assume that he figured it out.
