How do you connect an RV battery?

I need to hook up my rv battery.

First, remove the red (positive) cable first. Then remove the black (negative) cable next. Take the battery out and put the new one in by using the same concept; connecting the red cable first and the black cable second.

The battery in most RV's is the same as an automobile. First turn the engine off and remove the cover from the battery. Disconnect the red or positive cable first then the negative (black) cable. Remove the battery and replace it. Connect the cables Red first and replace the cover on the battery.

Well it should install similarly to an other automotive battery. The positive(+) terminal is attached to the red connector and the negative(-) one to the black ground connector.

In connecting RV batteries we need to determine the polarity of the wiring. Clip a invertor to a 12 volt battery,then insert the wires into the invertor outlet.

You'll want to connect the positive terminal first and then the negative. Make sure your terminals and clamps are clean and the battery is topped up with fluid.

You should make sure that you connect the red (positive) terminal to the red positive jack on the rv, once this is secure then connect the black negative terminal to the black negative jack, be sure not to touch any other part of the rv while doing this.
