    Hey,
    I'm trying to hookup a battery to our 97 Rockwood freedom for when we head to Yellowstone in a few weeks. Can't figure out where I'm going wrong. I picked up 27 deep cycle battery and ran the ground to the frame and the positive back to the converter. Switched the converter to battery but nothing. I'm attaching some pics to help. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Adam- Look inside the frame rail behind the LP tank (I can see the opening in your pic), see the wires? Look at that bundle...see if there is a red (or possibly white) heavy gauge wire capped/terminated poking out of that wiring bundle. If so, attach your positive battery wire to that wire with the same size wire and a waterproof connector. Attach your negative/ground wire to the frame as close to the battery as possible, again using the same size/gauge wire as the positive.
    If your pup has brakes, that line in the wiring bundle will not be there to use. Like Ray said, you'll have to hunt down the positive line coming out of the converter and make a connection there. Make sure you're using the larger gauge wire (8/10) for both pos/neg lines.

    do the interior lights work? on AC? or batt?
