Battery Schematic

01/06/2009 7:15 PM

Over the Holodays I had my 4 batteries stolen from my 99 Monaco Diplomat desiel pusher. They took everything so I am left to find a schematic for the installation. Can you help me?

How many volt system? It could be wired for 12V, 36V or 48V and some components may need lower voltage and would be landed on different terminals.

Need more information--K T

Allot of the larger diesel truck use a 12V system with a 24V starter. The use of a series/parallel solenoid allows for multiple 12 or 6V batteries to be used as separate sub systems for hotel loads and a 24V starter. But I have not seen very many RV's set up with this system. I would suspect it was a straight 12V system.

I believe your unit came with (4) four 6V batteries with two groups of two at 12V each. More likely one set was hotel loads and the other was set up for Chassis loads and you have a 12V starter.

If this is the case, each group would need a jumper to connect the + of one 6V batt to the – of the other 6V batt giving you the required 12V.

I would also guess that two batteries are mounted on the left adn two on the right side of the chassis and you have two leads into each battery compartment. That would make it easy.

Hope this info helps.

Be careful. The thief knows where to get four brand new batteries to replace his old ones.

Follow each cable to ascertain which is connected to the frame as ground, it shouldn't be too far.

If you can get no satisfaction, check with your local mechanics to see which ones have software that provides schematics of electrical systems. The shop I worked for had such software and it provided a lot more information than just electrical schematics. These programs are expensive and require a yearly subscription to keep them up to date so don't be surprised if it costs you something.

Hello 1herbie,

I forgot to paste this address I got the pics from. There is lots of other pics for you to check by to see if it is the Monaco you have. Seats, internal steering wheel etc.

Take care................

Hi Guest,

I am pretty sure the original schematic would always be welcome over a picture.

Obviously this is not for me as I was giving advice on this, but thanks anyway. Hey, why not join? It is a great place with some pretty damn clever people, and they do not bite........... well, not hard at least! LOL
