Hello to you all

I have my 2001 Ford E150 Gas High-roof conversion project that I am trying to build it out to live in 100% because of Health issues

No tools or place to work on it , but doing my best

LOVE MY VAN for sure

Have storage full of 400watts of Renogy solar, 12v 32" tv, security cameras for inside and outside just waiting to install

Looking for ideas and motivation to get my van done

Need help on how to deal with my House Battery

Is it a Factory Ford mount, or a conversion company addition?

Would love to see Wiring Schematic to work on it

This is mounted under Passenger side twin doors

Up by Foresthill? There is some surprisingly rugged country up in that area.

Yes that looks like the stock Ford AUX battery and it is where it is normally located on the outboard side of the passenger frame rail. There are four bolts that hold that in place. These bolts, two on each side screw into two very convenient clipped-to-the-frame nut holders. Two of the bolts must be removed and the other two, one on each side, can be left threaded but loose. This allows the box to be lifted and slid off the bolt heads (and to make re-installation a bit easier). The box will drop down but should be held up by the limiting cable mounted to each side of the box.

Now the box can be tilted to reveal the plastic cover attached to the battery box. Two bolts remove that. Inside should be a Group 65 battery (about the only battyer size that will fit in there. The wiring at this location is very straight forward Positive and Negative cables. Remove those cables making sure to protect against the positive cable grounding out to any metal as it is directly connected to the battery in the engine compartment.

There is a small head long shaft bolt that secures the battery clamp. it is located in the box down the outboard side of the battery.

As to the rest of the wiring schematic for the aux battery - someone else can chime in with where to look for the separator relay, etc.

And this should be helpful as well with wiring schematic:

Keep in mind that, if it's stock, it's not a deep cycle battery but a starting battery wired directly, in parallel with your primary starting battery. True deep cycle batteries are preferable for a house batteries. An AGM deep cycle battery can be installed inside your van for easy accessibility. Most owners install some form of isolator, switches, etc. Here's an informative link:
