Battery instillation with 4 wires

Took battery out of 2016 26bh for the winter. Trying to reconnect but it has 4 wires. 2 larger ones 1 black and 1 white and 2 smaller diameter wires 1 black and 1 blue. No idea what order to hook these up in should have taken a picture. Please help

There should just be one ground that you can trace to the frame near the battery. The other wires are power for the inverter, tongue jack, etc. If you trace a wire to a nearby fuse, it's a POS power wire.

I have a pic from my old 2016 BHS. Not saying this is how yours is hooked up, but it is what mine looked like.

If I remember correctly the termination for the wires are different diameter circles so nothing that should go on the neg side would fit on the positive side.

The main worry is figuring out which is your ground. Make certain that is on the NEG terminal. Everything else should go on the POS terminal. I can't remember ever having any extra wires on a ground.

Great! Now take a picture or write it down. Mine are written in the battery compartment on the wall and tagged.

I have mixed them up once and you have to learn from experience sometime.

You may not be out of the woods yet. Sound like 2 sets of wires. 2 house wires . and 2 tong jack wires. Black and white = house. Blue and black = jack. White ground. Black ground. See if your tong jack works.

Or, wrap the positive cables with RED electrical tape, for the future....
