Question Power Converter Replacement

'89 Itasca Sunflyer, 25' - Replacing original power converter, 40 amp Magnetek, with a 45 amp Inteli Power 9245.
The original has 3 wires; one for all 12vdc negatives from RV 12 V circuits and RV 12 V storage battery, a second for 12vdc positive output of converter (for all RV 12vdc circuits except those requiring filtered DC current), and a third for 12vdc positive from an RV storage battery (also use for circuits requiring filtered DC current, 12 V radio, CB, stereo, TV, fluorescent lights).
The new power converter has two connections; one for the positive side of the battery and DC Distribution Panel, and the other for the negative side of the battery and DC Distribution Panel.
What is the correct wiring configuration given the above? It appears I have two Positive wires with different requirements, and only one place on the new converter for them.
Thanks, Dan

You hook both positive wires (Battery and "House") to the red screw on the new converter (Positive)

I suspect you figured out already that the negative (Black screw) gets the ground wire(s)

Home is where I park it!

If you purchase a 9260 it's flat'r compared to the 9245 and will install with the intake cooler fan next to the outside air grill.

Smile The fix

Thank you for your responses. I connected both to the positive, plugged into house current and also switched batteries on. Everything seems to be working properly.

Thank you again for the quick replies.
