I installed my two batteries incorrectly in my 2017 242SE Limited and smoked the wires leading to the engines. Two wires are completely void of the insulation. I attempted to cut away the electrical tape from where the smoking occurred but not sure how far the insulation has melted off. Is it possible to order and replace the wiring myself? I haven't been able to find anywhere to order the wiring harnesses. Any help is appreciated.

Surprised there's not a relay or fuse that would prevent that? Pro tip for next time, take pictures of the setup before you remove.
