Splicing???

Am I able to tap into a main electrical line and splice it?? I have an RV and need to run 5 fuse boxes off the 4 batteries. Do I just daisey chain them or slice them into the 5 fuse boxes?

As you can see I am new at this, so any information will help.

Probably not and live to tell about it. And almost certainly not legally.

But it depends on exactly what you mean by "main electrical line", and I don't really understand much of what you are trying to accomplish.

I don't understand what you are trying to do.

Treat batteries with care, as they can explode and spray acid everywhere. Shorting batteries can cause fires, burns and explosions. Wiring them together can increase the voltage enough to shock you.

The 12 Volt wiring in an RV is required to comply with the
RVIA Standard For Low Voltage Systems. I would recommend that you get a copy of this standard, and a couple of books on RV electrical systems, if you intend to do any significant modification to the wiring of your RV.
