There should be an inline fuse near the battery...probably 30 A. Check that with an ohmmeter. A visual check may not be good enough.

And make sure you didn't reverse the wires. Numerous posts on JOF regarding that mistake.

Welcome to the forum.

The fuse and reversing the leads are the two leading causes of battery connection problems.

Also, if you did reverse the leads, then there are fuses that may have blown due to that condition. If so, just correctly connecting the leads may not fix your no power problem.

On the newer models, the fuses that blow when the battery is hooked up with reverse polarity are in with the circuit breakers and the converter. Folks have to find a way to get access to that area or pull the breaker box out.

I'm out of my league here. I have no experience with this and I'm only repeating what I have read posted in this forum.
