On my '96 Safari those red wires are connected to the positive, (+), and the whites are connected to the negative, (-) .
But that does not mean that yours are the same.

It would be easy to determine if the white wires are ground

A simple continuity check could be done

Can you please explain how a "simple continuity check" would tell you if the white wires... which are currently NOT CONNECTED to the chassis battery ...are "ground"...and therefore should be connected to the negative, (-), post of the chassis battery?
Thanks
