Unsafe 12 volt RV House Battery

Responded to request to bring two 6 volt Trojan T-105 deep cycle batteries to an RV currently operating on two 12 volt batteries in parallel.

I discovered two Costco 12 volt marine batteries wired in parallel with very small automotive wire of some sort.  And connected to the terminals without any cable eyelets.

RV Battery Installer in San Diego

Was called by a customer on vacation at San Elijo with family in 38 ft diesel pusher motorhome-coach.
The four 6 volt, house batteries were not holding a charge and San Elijo campgrounds has only a couple spots to plug into shore power.

My client needed power to run the heater at night since it is January so we delivered and installed 4 new 6 volt US-2200XC batteries with 232 ah.

Note, if you choose to install new house batteries into your RV, remember to find the disconnect switch to the house battery bank and turn it off first.
And always diagram and take a picture of how the cables connect before you start.

Fleetwood RV-Motorhome Battery Install – 6 Volt in Series

Installed two Trojan T-105 6 Volt 225 amp hour deep cycle batteries into a Fleetwood Motorhome, owned by a local business owner.

The installation was simple. The Fleetwood RV carries the house batteries in the steps leading into the coach.

The Fleetwood battery compartment tray originally contained a single 12 volt Group 27 deep cycle-marine battery. But the tray will accommodate two 6 volt golf cart batteries in series.
