Hi all, I'm about to head out for the first trip of the year (our second season) after our first winter in storage. Can anyone tell me how to reconnect the battery? Is the White cable +ve or -ve? I forgot to make a note when I winterized my trailed back in October







Thanks

trace the wires, the one attached to the frame is your ground or neg wire. also somewhere on the front of your trailer should tell you. I say it this way because different trailers have been known to wore different colors for + and -.

Black is + and White is -
this is standard in 120 volt systems. As your trailer has both 120 volt AC and 12 volt DC. The industry went with the higher voltage as the standard.

I wondered why in the hell they would do that! Makes since now that you say that.

Many thanks. As you say, White turned out to be -ve and Black +ve
