The ground strap should be secured to the battery clamp

 Mounting bolts should be included in the kit and will need to be pushed through both the mounting tabs and the holes in the floor. One end can then be attached to the isolator switch's positive terminal post and the other to the original battery. One of these clamps can be tightened with a wrench.

The ground strap should be secured to the battery clamp. A self- tapping screw should be used to attach the loose eyelet from the other end of  extrusion bushing the chassis. A short, black cable can be found on the battery's loose ground clamp and should be run to the floor. The isolator switch will also need to mounted next to the battery boxes with self-tapping screws that run through the mounting tabs. All the drill mounting tabs should be drilled through into the RV floor. Protection to the cable can be achieved by pushing a rubber grommet in the hole. One way to take the stress off of your current system and add more features and appliances is with a deep cycle marine battery. A second hole will need to be drilled adjacent to a battery box in order to accommodate the battery cable..Next, wire the grounding system by placing the ground terminal's negative cable to the ground terminal of the second. Then, the chassis can be screwed through the floor of the RV. Once a location is decided, the battery boxes will need to be best arranged and mounted. A 2 guage wire can be run from the positive side of one of the batteries to the isolator switch's A terminal and tightened. You can close the hood and get back on the road!A battery expert can not only help you with battery installation, but also with any battery accessories your RV might need.First, the engine must be turned off and the hood opened. The switch can then be wired by running a wire from the isolator M post to the positive post of the original battery. A half inch of the coating on the cable should be stripped. Then, attach to the second battery's other positive post.Lastly, the original battery cable can be reattached and tightened.Secondly, a location for the new battery must be chosen. These batteries differ from lead acid car batteries and some consideration is required during installation. A terminal end can be crimped to each end of that cable. They can be tightened with a wrench. A convenient and safe location in most Rvs is the floor of an interior closet.

This can be done with a wrench. Plastic zip ties can be used to hold the wire. Attach the short, red cable to the positive post of one battery and tighten. The wire should run through the hole drilled in the floor, then along the chassis to the battery. Next, wire the positive cables.Whether you are traveling in your RV through Nashville or Birmingham, it is clear that without batteries, one would not be able to enjoy all the conveniences that RV living provides. On the camper's battery, the positive cable will need to be removed. The switch's grounding wire also needs to be attached to the chassis.
