Battery cable cut????...Pos. Side

****Cross Posted to Hybird******* I have had our camper a year......Hybird Shamrock 2002 model.....I knew it did not have a battery on I thought I might buy one and put on have when we are not connected to AC....Lights and I pulled the cover off the gas tanks...and the connector on the Pos. side of the cable has been cut off???????.......hummmmmm....why?

I can put another on easy......but why was it cut ....makes me think something might be wrong????? can I find out?

guess just get one and hook a Battery up and see what smokes

is if common if there is a issue to CUT the cable?.....or did he need the battery and did not have time to remove the lug.....and just cut the wire?

any thoughts???

Connect a digital ohmmeter to the two leads. Turn off everything in the RV that can be turned off. The meter should be reading well over 20 ohms. Then try turning things on, one at a time. If the reading ever drops below about 1 or 2 ohms, you may have found a problem.
