I have a Eagle 284BHS which had one BLACK 10AWG wire from the TT Battery Controller to a 30Amp fuse located at the battery and the other end of the fuse is connected to the POSITIVE terminal of the battery. The wire end that connected the fuse to the TT was connected with a electrical wire nut, as probably ALL the Jayco TT's are wired.
My guess from the picture, is that the RED cable is from your 2nd battery, correct? If it is, you need to replace that cable with a battery cable that is the proper size for connecting 2 batteries together and has the lugs on both ends of the cables properly crimped
, using a 8 ton cable crimping tool. The connection that you have on the RED cable, was probably done with a pair of pliers, will add resistance to the circuit and will probably heat up under load/charge, and will corrode in due time.
So I would guess that ONE of those black wires goes to the TT Battery Charge controller and should be on its OWN 30 Amp fuse. I have no clue as to what those other 2 black taped wires go to (when you have time try to isolate where they go to.. stabilizers...?) and I would put those other taped black wires on a separate fuse(s). As far as I am concerned, you can never have enough fuses...
On TT's the only UN-FUSED
link should be the TT's break-away switch.
Keep us informed as to where those other wires connect to.
Just my thoughts,
