THOR #19490
Number of wires attached to the positive chassis battery cable

I'm adding a battery disconnect for the chassis battery on a 2016 Thor Vegas 25.3. I'm running a new cable to the disconnect that I've added to the passenger storage behind the front wheel. When i was undoing the extra wires from the positive cable they fell of and went different directions. I have found 3. Can anyone tell me if that is all there are?

No one really can.
Any equipment added to yours will throw off the count, just like the wire you're adding now. .
The best bet is to cautiously and with deliberation, check the forensic fit.
If the wires fell off and weren't pulled off, they'll want to go right where they came from.

Been there, done that.
Now I take pictures before I do any r&r work.

Typically speaking......

You would have one for the generator..... one for the levelers... and one for the Inverter.

There could be more but if you have a generator, levelers and an inverter you’d have three.

There could also be another one for a Battery Isolation Manager.

I am like Duckface, I too take pictures before dis-assembly along with during the task.
I also use number tape labels, or masking tape labels to assist me.
I have also been known to draw it out on paper for my own, and future, references.
good luck

Sorry i ddn't make it clear.

The positive wire i'm talking about is the engine battery (chassis) not the House batteries.

I normally take a picture too, but was struggling with the nut and forgot.

I see one wire that goes to a 100 amp fuse. one goes into the chassis wiring and one comes from the power boost. i think that's all of them.

Unfortunately I've moved all the wires to the underside of the battery tray. and searched for any more. Hopefully that's all of them.

Okay, there may be one for the B.I.R.D. also.
The system component that monitors charging between chassis battery, and the coach batteries.
