Dan, thanks for making me question and double check the polarity. I did have it exactly backward. The wire color is what threw me off. I have a yellow and a white wire and there is no + or - sign anywhere after you take the lid off the battery compartment and I obviously figured that yellow was + and white was -. (Because home wiring is white and black and usually the white wire is the neutral.)
Anyway, after reading your post I ran out to the relic (camper) and looked for the polarity signs, which are on the battery cover and no where inside the battery compartment. It was laying along side me on the bench, AND THEN, hooked it up PROPERLY and instantly
went on in the trailer. Everything works! Hurray!!
I will be marking a + and a - right next to the wires INSIDE THE BATTERY BOX so this never happens again!
Thank you everyone for making me scratch my head a little harder. I and my wife are very thankful for this forum and, of course, your caring help.
Until we talk again,
