Does anyone know where the wires from the amp meter should be ran. I'm not running an alternator and there's no solenoid. Only a battery and a solenoid on the starter?

Are you running a generator?

If you are just plug your ammeter into a hot wire coming off the battery, that will tell you how many amps your generator is putting out. Use a fairly large gauge of wire for the ammeter though so the resistance in the smaller wire don't give a false signal.

No generator. Just a pulling truck going 300ft at a time. Is it possible to use the amp meter to read how the batteries are doing?

You will need to get a volt meter (battery condition meter). They are available at all discount auto parts stores. Pretty cheap too.
