I have two 12v batteries, but there is only 1 ground cable. I will install my switch in that ground cable when I get a switch. Well, actually I will then have two, shorter, ground cables with the switch between them.

Here is a picture to give you a better idea on how to wire in the second battery and the disconnect switch

Well, here it is Monday and I didn't throw any sparks!


That was caused by the fact that I got NOTHING done on the RV this weekend!


New phones and service plus helping SWMBO clear out her sister's apartment meant no time to play outside.


We'll try again Tuesday if the grass hasn't grown to long...

The grass did get out-of-hand and more dealing with the SIL's apt.


Finally, on the 21st I had the chance to swap the battery. Couldn't find the cutoff switch. (I swear I left it in the pile by the shelving near the middle of the barn.)


This coming Memorial Day Weekend looks like 3-4 days of boondocking. We'll see how the new battery behaves!

Battery cut off is a fairly cheap upgrade. Here are the steps that prompted me to finally do it. (1) Remove locking cable from around battery box. (2) Remove nylon strap and battery box cover. (3) Remove wing nut from negative terminal (4) Drop wing nut into battery box. You can probably figure out the rest! No regrets at ALL since installing mine.
