installing batteries in Lexington

Hi folks, this is my first message so be easy on me. I purchased a Forest River 2004 Lexington 27' class b+ used from a private seller last summer. When winterizing last fall, I took the cabin batteries out to store at home (but not before taking a picture of the set-up).. Unfortunately the picture is no where to be found now and I got a mess of wires left over when I try to hook them up.I have no trouble setting the batteries up in parallel, and if it was just a matter of hooking them to the motorhome, no problem.. but things never go that easy. theres 6 different wires (I'm trying to attach a picture of them) Is there anyone who would care to draw a diagram for me. Can find all kinds of standard hookups, but nothing that looks like this...and of course, with the location of the batteries, I'm laying on the ground trying to figure it out.. would appreciate any help please

I only see 4 wires from your picture. Is it possible to get a shot of the 6 wires you reference in your post? This may help me to help you.
Cheers

OK no worries. You will have the two short cables then running from positive to positive posts and negative to negative so you have a parallel setup. The two wires in your photo that have red ends go on the positive posts and the other two that are black go on the negative post. Hope this helps don't hesitate to ask if this isn't clear. Cheers
