Default Pleasure way excel coach battery wiring hookup

Hi: New RV owner, and first post! I have a 2012 Pleasure way excel (on a Ford chassis). I made the mistake of not labeling the wires when I stored the battery inside for the winter. Now I'm not sure how to re-connect.
There are 4 wires - red and black thick guage automotive wires (I assume they are same as always on a North American auto: red is + and black is -), and 2 other thinner guage wires - white woven cloth covered, and black plastic covered, with white tape wound over top. I tried hooking all 4 wires up with white cloth wire to + post, and got big sparks, so am assuming I need help.

Why would you do that?

I don't know if it is too late for a photo,
but it is always good to post one even if it does not mean anything to you.

To avoid possibly damaging some component, I would contact technical support at PW.

Default Solution from pleasureway

Called pleasureway. Very helpful. black and red wires with black protective sheathing over them both have red tape on the ends, so they are +ve. That leaves the 2 other wires, one of which has white cloth sheath, and the other has black plastic sheath with white electrical tape wound over top. Both of these are -ve
