I've actually heard a bad thermostat can cause the evaporator core to malfunction.I've also heard of some a/c compressors will shut off if the engine temp gets to high which could be a thermostat issue.

No, the thermostat has no effect on the battery or on the A/C. A thermostat either works correctly or it will stick open or stick closed. Sticking open will cause the engine to never reach full operating temperature, and as such your heater will not work properly. A thermostat stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat.

How do you connect two deep cycle 12 volt batteries in parallel to an RV?

First off you must have the same type batteries. Connect the positive post of the first battery to the positive post of the second battery. Then connect the negative post of the first battery to the negative post of the second battery. Now connect the positive post of the first battery to the positive connection on the vehicle. Then connect the negative post of the first battery to the negative cable of the vehicle. Click the link for a diagram.

When insatlling a battery what cable goes on what post?

There are typically two cables, one is usually red and the other black. The black cable attaches to the negative terminal on the battery and the red wire connects to the positive terminal on the battery. When removing the battery from the vehicle always remove the negative cable from the battery first. When installing the new battery always connect the negative cable to the battery last.

What is the difference between battery code 27 and 27F?

The difference between these two battery codes is the arrangement of the terminal posts. When the battery is installed correctly in a vehicle, as you're looking at it from the front of the vehicle, a 27 will have the negative post on the left side and the positive post on the right. A 27F battery has opposite post positions...positive terminal on the left and negative on the right.

Which terminal of battery is grounded in vehicles and why?

Negative terminal is grounded to the vehicle. Because the system is a negative ground system. Electricity will not flow unless it has a path to ground.

What is negative grounding?

The term, 'negative ground' or 'negative earth' refers to the system of chassis-grounding, or chassis-earthing, used in vehicles. With this system, the negative terminal of the battery is directly connected to the metal parts of a vehicle, while the positive terminal is connected to the various electrical devices (lamps, etc.) using insulated conductors. The vehicle's metal parts ('chassis') then act as the return conductor to the battery.

Is a red battery cable negative or positive?

The red battery cable is the positive one. The positive cable supplies the voltage to the starter and the main power center, then distributes it to the rest of the vehicle. The negative (black) cables supply the ground to the entire vehicle, which is what makes the circuit complete and allows the electricity to work.

What do battery connectors do?

Battery connectors are what connect batteries to devices so the device can get power from the battery. Electricity is the flow of electrons, and a battery has to have a way for the electrons to leave (negative wire) and return (positive wire). Thus the terminals on the battery are what do this, and battery connectors in a device or vehicle are what carries the electricity to the device or vehicle so it can be used. For instance, they electrically connect the battery to a laptop to power the computer.

Why not clamp negative clamp to battery?

Because there may be a spark when you connect a jumper cable negative clamp to the battery post which can cause an explosion. Batteries emit hydrogen gas which is very volitive. Always connect the negative clamp to the engine or another ground point on the vehicle.
