my 2009 - 378 battery compartment.



Hope this helps

Red wires should go to the post marked w/+
black wires go post marked w/ -

+ stands for positive
- stands for negative

make sure you check this / or you can damage batterys / and get hurt

Gotcha but it was not the main wires I was confused on there are three smaller wires white-green -blue that also connect - the pict above looks correct or similar - I would have thought however white would be positive instead of negative but i will give that config a shot

Here are pictures of how my batteries looked before I installed the new ones. I took these so I'd know how to reconnect the wires when I put in the new batteries.

Also I attached a much clearer picture of the new battery install. It was taken with a much better camera and you can clearly see where all those little accessory wires go.

The blue and green wires are the hot leads for the fridge and propane sensor.

I was told by my RV dealer that on RVs, white is usually ground, FWIW.
