Make sure the terminals and connections are clean.
Make sure the battery is in the holder and that the clamps are in place.
Connect the POSITIVE (+) terminal first. It will be connected to the wire (probably RED) that goes to the starter solenoid.
Connect the NEGATIVE (-) or GROUND last. This will be the BLACK wire that goes to the frame or engine block.

Our motorhome battery that runs the house section drains within 2 hrs of use. it seems to drain the main battery which runs the motor as well. what can we do so this will last longer? we would liekt o run...

Your motorhome should have a converter in it. It takes 120 volts from the shore power hookup and converts it to 12 volts to run your heater and coach lights as well as recharging the house battery. You should make sure it is working properly. You should also have the house battery tested to make sure it's good. The engine battery should not connected to the house battery when the key is off. If it is there is a wiring or relay problem.

Disconnect the negative battery on both batteries for 15 minutes; then re-connect. If the problem persists, look inside the plastic connector and see if one of the pins got pushed in preventing contact.

My Car Will Not turn Over

Sounds like you just need a jump. if that doesnt work and the battery is fully charged then you need to disconnect the wires from the battery and clean the cable hookups and the battery terminals. You can go to a auto parts store and get a terminal wire brush cleaner. Wire brush the terminals and the hookup till all the corrosion is off and then put some vasaline on the terminals and hookups to prevent corrosion later. Hook you battery back up and see if it will start.
