Which terminal does the black wire go to on the rocky aux battery

## How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

you always want to hook up the negative. last positive first negative last looking up when you`re disconnecting. you want to take off the negative first. and then the positive last if there`s any issues there`s going to be a circuit breaker in this neighborhood somewhere possibly all units are different.
Positive first, then negative. When disconnecting the cables from the old battery, disconnect the negative first, then the positive. Connect the new battery in the reverse order, positive then negative.”
Connecting the negative terminal first can create a short circuit, potentially damaging the battery, and electrical system, or even causing injury. By connecting the positive terminal first and then the negative, you can minimize the risk of any accidents or damage, ensuring a safe and successful installation.
Attach the red jumper cables first. Start by clamping one red cable to the positive side of the battery that won`t start. Then attach the other red clamp to the positive side of the working battery. Next, clamp one black cable to the negative side of the working battery.
When connecting 2 RV batteries in parallel, you will want to use a jumper cable to connect both positive terminals and a second jumper cable to connect both negative terminals of the batteries. This should give you a positive/positive and a negative/negative connection.
Wire groups of 3 batteries in parallel, giving 12 V with 3 times the capacity. Then connect 4 of these parallel groups in series to get 48 V.
The cable on the positive terminal uses +12V while the one on the negative side uses -12V. If the positives and negatives are switched, the battery will try to compensate and make the negative 12 volts into a positive charge resulting in a huge surge of power and an enormous amount of heat to be produced.
To connect batteries in series, you connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative of another until the desired voltage is achieved. When charging batteries in series, you need to utilize a charger that matches the system voltage.
You can wire three 12V batteries in series to create a 36V battery bank. Once again, just connect the negative terminal of your 2-battery series string to the positive terminal of the third battery. And, once again, you can use a multimeter to check that the voltage is around 36 volts.
The same principle holds for a 24V battery bank in that it provides 24 volts. As we discussed before, most car and RV batteries are 12V. 12V batteries are used in most vehicles because the electrical components such as the starter, lighting, and ignition systems are designed to operate on 12 volts.
For general boat and RV applications wiring batteries in parallel provides the simplest wiring and common voltage, however, for large applications beyond 3000 watts of power, using higher voltage series connections might be best.
Remember, when connecting the positive cables to the batteries, you should always start by connecting the dead battery first. If you feed energy into the cables before they are connected to your battery, you can cause a safety hazard.
Never connect the black cable to the negative (–) terminal on your dead battery. This is very dangerous, could result in a possible explosion. Make sure you follow the instructions in your owner`s manual when jumpstarting your vehicle.
Connect positive first, negative having less potential won`t arc. The higher the voltage, the greater the chance of arcing and fusion. On a car if negative first and you are touching any metal part of car, when attaching positive there is possibility of arcing through you.
Your RV batteries work by receiving and storing electricity from your chosen power source. They hold this power until you discharge the battery by utilizing the electrical equipment plugged into the battery. Batteries are the key to making sure you have the comforts of home wherever your RVing travels take you.
Two main power sources charge your batteries: your RV`s generator and shore power. The converter or inverter on your RV will use the power from your generator to recharge your house batteries while it is running.
Connecting batteries in series increase the voltage, however, connecting batteries in parallel increase the current or ampere hours. The overall power output of the series or parallel combination is determined by both its voltage and ampere hour ratings(capacity).

I would like to hook up a 12 volt battery to the trailer. In the cupboard below the propane stove is a plug with white, black and orange wire to it.
In the AC power converter cupboard I have a plug with a black and orange wire. How do I hook up the battery so that it charges and runs the fridge while I’m driving, and lets me use the lights with the fridge on propane while I’m camping?
ANSWER : You haven’t told us what trailer you have, what DC-AC converter you have, it the wire is original or aftermarket and what gage it is.

Because of that you must first identify the wires. You will need a multimeter for that. Start by finding if your trailer has a negative wire or is using the chassis as the ground. For that disconnect the battery from the truck (make sure you have the radio code handy) then measure the resistance between the 3 wires and the body of the truck – you will find the ground wire when the resistance will be close to 0. Reconnect the battery and measure the voltage between the ground wire and the other 2 – the one with 12v on it is the power one and the other goes to the power input of the converter. Check that by removing the converter and looking where they are plugged – if you have any doubts that they are not the wires from the cupboard just check their continuity.All of this is a 5 minute job. Once you know the wires just connect the ground on to the minus and the power and the converter ones to the plus.

New battery just put boat in water always had a solar powered charger on battery took it off about a week ago today went to start boat battery dead. I do not know if it has altanator or what have a friend mechanic says he has a meter to test whatever, if you can send what to tes & numbers of tests & what might be bad or not hooked up. Thanks Brown
ANSWER : You will need to do 3 tests:

1 – you must find out if you have a short in the wiring: disconnect the + cable from the battery and put an ampermeter in there to close the circuit; if a current is detected it means that you have a short and it will drain the battery. To locate the short start disconnecting wires and look at the meter – when you will disconnect the wire that goes to the failed wire or part the current will stop flowing; find the faulty part and fix or replace it.2 – you must find out if the alternator is charging the battery correctly: start the motor, wait for half an hour then measure the voltage on the battery. If it’s below 14.1 volts then the alternator is failing and it will have to be replaced.3 – you must find out if the battery is in good working order: after the second test has finished shut down the engine and disconnect the battery; wait one hour and measure it -if the voltage on it has dropped to below 11.8 volts then the battery has aged and it’s no longer holding the charge so replace it.

I have a 1997 motor guide wireless 24volt Big Water trolling motor. hooked it up to the batteries and put in a new 9volt battery in the foot pedal. the lights come on on top of the motor head and the foot pedal beeps, but the prop doesnt turn or spin (like there is no power to the bottom of the motor) any suggestions to what the problem is or how to fix it? (just bought the motor from a lady who’s husband died. dont have any manuals)
ANSWER : Hello there, as you said the power does not get to the bottom of the motor. The motor could be faulty or just completely bad. First you have to determine that the motor is good until you can determine this it is quite impossible to determine if there can be any fix. Take out the motor and try to power it on its own if it works fine then the problem is not from the motor but most likely the problem is from the motor. Let me know what your findings are. Hoping to hear from you soon.
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Every time I replace the 4 AA batteries all camera
ANSWER : There is an internal battery back up for storing settings. It’s soldered to the main board and I don’t think it’s a rechargeable battery judging by the amount of people who have owned these cameras who have encountered the same problem.
It’s a watch type battery and these things do go flat after a few years and unless you know the type and voltage only fuji service centres can replace.
It won’t affect the camera’s performance it’s just a pain having to set up each time you change the batteries.
