92 Fleetwood flair

Just bought 92 Fleetwood flair and they wired it so I have to emergency start every time. I bought 2 12v batteries for it but never seen how the hookup goes and now have like 8 wires and no clue what goes where. Also can't find aux dash panel wiring schematics. I contacted Fleetwood and got no response.

Hi and Welcome to FRF.
Just so you know, this Forum is primarily for owners of Forest River products and Fleetwood is not a FR product.
So unless someone here owned a Fleetwood, you'll probably only be able to get general RV information.
So you're going to need to post bettet pics, that show both sides of the battery compartment. Like I can't tell if that's a battery cable on the left.
Also you need to provide information on what the batteries are. They appear to be 12v batteries. Are they true deep cycle batteries or dual-purpose marine batteries?
As far as schematics, this Forum wouldn't be the appropriate place for that since your Fleetwood is not a Forest River product.

The Fleetwood that exists today is not the same Fleetwood company that built your RV. I would expect no assistance from them.

You have described your situation, but you haven’t actually asked a question or indicated how you want to approach your problem. Do you intend to dig into it and solve the wiring issues yourself, or are you just seeking help from a manufacturer, dealer, or RV tech?

T-Rex (Wrecks)

I love photos of classics. This one shows two maintenance free batteries in the trough behind the grill of an old Chevy gasser. It appears the batt on the left is reversed and a (expletive deleted) attempt to connect what appears to be a lugged ground cable to the positive terminal without the proper parts.

Since there are no clues as to exactly what “having to emergency start” means one cannot determine if you are using the chassis battery(s) or the house batteries to start the motor (engine if you prefer).

Basically, you will need to wire your two 12v batteries in parallel to get them to work.

Also notable is that both of the lug posts on the left battery are broken off rendering it useless without the use of terminal connectors that have posts for your existing lugs.

Thanks for my evening exercise and good luck.
