I realize this question has been around for a looooong while, but if anyone else needs the information, the RED wire goes to the positive terminal of the battery while the BLACK goes to negative. I have included a link which will show you the features of this radio as well as the Owners Manual.

How do I know what battery to buy and how do I hook it up to my gulfstream coach

Above all, buy the best battery you can afford. You can't have too much battery! A standard sealed lead-acid battery is okay for the engine, but I would suggest an AGM battery for the coach. AGMs are longer lasting, charge quicker and can stand abuse. Make sure it is a deep cycle battery for a RV, NOT A MARINE TYPE DEEP CYCLE. Marine type deep-cycle batteries are designed to start engines along with their deep-cycle capabilities. They WILL NOT last in an RV.

Make sure the replacement is the same design i.e. + post on left (or whichever). Compare to original battery. Switch breaker off for coach. Replace battery. Hook up the RED cable to + FIRST, then black cable to ground. Switch power back on. You can charge it if you want to, but I never noticed any need.

Is a deep cycle battery the same as an RV/marine battery?

Deep cycle is typically for long duration loads like lights or a troling motor but not very high starting currents. Unless marked, an RV battery is a combination starting running battery. It may have a higher starting current than the deep cycle, but not as long of a run time.

I am connecting a 1000w Cobra Power inverter to a deep cycle marine battery that will be used to run small appliances while camping. How do I properly connect the inline circut breaker for maximum safety?

The breaker goes in in series.

So, that means (for example) you remove the hot wire to the unit, from the positive battery power source, and hook this wire to one side of the breaker, then connect the other terminal to the positive battery power source.

This will stop current flow if anything over 40 amps happens on the line.

You actually can hook the breaker anywere along the circuit, but the closer to the power source, the better you are protected.

Hi, the deep cycle battery is for the home part and should charge through the external connector port. The regular battery is for the engine. Is the regular battery charged up too?

I just got my first cb and am trying to install it. I have connected the red wire in the fuse box( to the radio) and grounded the black wire. turned the car on and I cannot get any power to the CB, but the...

Take a deep breath and start over! The best way to power this little radio is probably through the cigarette lighter or 12vdc accessory jack. It is simple and straight forward and no fuse box or negative ground wires to worry about. Go the Radio Shack, purchase an adaptor (cig lighter type) and hook it up to your radio wiring being careful to watch polarity. You may have to have your ignition on to run the radio, but that is much safer that maybe blowing up the unit.

Unless you are running a larger more powerful unit or an amp, there is no added benefit to hooking the radio into the fuse box.

I have a 1000 Watt Inverter, along with a regular car battery when the electricity goes out; Question: Can I use the 1000 Watt inverter and connect a 100 amp, deep cycle battery? I use regular house...

Yes, just be sure connections are heavy enough wire, and obviously the inverter uses 12 vdc input. Hook jumper wires positive to positive, negative to negative, on all 12 volt batteries. Deep cycle batteries will work better than car batteries. Just remember, when re-charging them, that they last longer when charged slowly, so don't use a high amp setting on charger and to monitor them closely, and do it in a well ventilated area, away from any ignition sources.

2004 Toyota Camry keeps dying while driving but it starts right back up. Replaced fuel pump and air filter but it's still doing it. Someone said it may be the catallytic converter? Does that sound right?

You may have problem with your cooling system. Follow these simple steps to try to rectify the problem:

1. Write down the code of your radio.
2. Allow the engine to cool down. Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
3. Locate the ECT-engine coolant temperature sensor. It is located to the right of the engine head-cover, by the metal hook. The number two sensor with black wire connector. You will see the large coolant hose connecting to its body. That's the ECT.
4. Depress and pull out the wire plug.
5. Use a deep socket with wrench to remove the sensor.
6. Replace the ECT, reconnect the plug wire and the battery negative terminal.
7. Crank up the car again and test drive.

One of the red wires on your battery works the power to the ignition.
If a wire has melted it`s insulation, the wire could be burnt out.
Also, repeated starting attempts will cause the wires to get very hot.
Why did you change the battery ? Was it just flat or didi you have this problem before you changed it.?
