Need Quick Disconnect Battery Pigtails

Hi, My wife and I are Airstream newbies (and long time wannabes). We just purchased a '78 31' mid-bath double and discovered the Quick Disconnect Pigtails disappeared along with the old batteries. Am having NO LUCK googling. Any ideas?????Really don't want to hard-wire the batteries.

Thanks, saw your post a while back. Think we'll go the NAPA quick Disconnect Set way. We're not gonna travel in this. It's our weekend home while we put up fence, sink a well, put in road and build a few outbuildings. BUT....Next March, it's gonna be home while we build the house. I'll let ya know how it works out.

Okay, bailing on the disconnect idea...just gonna hard-wire one of the 2 batteries for now. How long a length should I get for both the Positive and Negative cables to get from battery box to wiring panel in a 31' mid-bath, double-back. Any suggestions?
Should be fun moving this down from 8300', huh?

All marine stores carry battery disconnects I bought one at WalMart in the camping section.

Well the end hooked to the converter/charger/12v fuse box looks like this:



I think the end that attaches to that should have battery terminals, leading to a matching end...

battery cable quick disconnects can be purchased from Napa (the ones that are used for service trucks that are installed on trucks for jumping purposes) or from a local battery supplier store like Interstate or Pacific Batteries.
