    Hi Guys

    Need to remove two leisure batteries - in which order should I disconnect the terminals?

    Thanks
    Robert

    disconnect the earths first. then you wont accidentally arc out your spanner from the live terminal to anything earthed. connect positive first when reinstalling.

    When disconnecting .. Negative first

    Re-connecting .. Positive first

    doing it this way eliminates the risk of short between spanner to earth and causing a spark which could result in a battery explosion..
