THOR #19088
Battery for Chateau Class C 28Z

I took the battery out when I winterized the coach this year and canít find the photo I took of the wiring before I removed it. Since there are 3 cables available to hook back up, I canít tell which ones go to which post of the battery. Iím assuming that the two with red clips are both positive but they donít seem to reach the positive terminal no matter which direction I insert the battery. See the attached photo.

Ignor the colored ends and trace the wires back.

One will go to the frame of the RV - that is negative.
The other two should go to DC standalone breakers and should go to the positive post.

Thanks for the quick reply! Good thing I followed your advice because i would have connected the two red cables to the positive terminal. But, I finally found the photo of the connections before i removed the battery. Who would ever have thought that a Negative cable would be marked with a RED connector! Came from the factory like this, which completely baffles me why theyíd do that. See photo of the original connections.
