2005 Lexington GTS house vs starting batteries

All four of my batteries are located in two separate bins on the drivers side. Looking at the bins, are the starting batteries in the left or right bin?

Stin,

It might help if we know which model you have. In the 255DS the house battery is on the passenger side and the truck starting battery is under the hood.

Iíve got a 270GTS, but only have two batteries in one bin. Left is for house and right is for generator. Then of course, the truck battery under the hood.

Wow,
Thatís a really different configuration than what I have. I have no battery under the hood and four batteries in two separate compartments on the drivers side. The problem is that I think someone reversed the two deep cycle house batteries and the two cranking batteries. Just trying to figure out which two go where since it doesnít appear obvious.
Thanks,
DSL2go

Disconnect one set and try to start your engine.

Great idea but rv wouldnít start or even turn over. Been in storage for quite a while with batteries that were several years old and some were cracked and leaking. I pulled all the batteries and am replacing with new. I will use your suggestion when installing new batteries. Worst that can happen is that I might end up hooking up a deep cycle battery to the engine and have to move it to a different location. Thanks, Iím all for simple solutions. 🙂
