Jayco Class C Onan Microlite 4000 Electrical Connections

Hi all, new to the forum, but I have a question:

I removed my Onan Microlite 4000 from my 2004 Jayco Escapade (had to replace the brushes, they were worn out). I did all that fine. I am now installing it back under the chassis. I have it all mounted and connected EXCEPT for the 3 cables coming in to the Onan from the Jayco chassis. I dont know (and I didnt note it when I disconnected it) where the following cables get connected to:

Coming from Jayco chassis:
Black Wire - I know this goes to the 30amp breaker switch on the Onan. So thats all hooked up fine.
White Wire - I dont know where it goes
Green Wire - I dont know where it goes, but obviously its a ground. Just want to make sure it gets grounded to the chassis of the Onan.

Can someone that has a Onan Microlite 4000 check their connections and let me know exactly where the White and Green wires get connected to?

Many thanks for the help!
Kevin

You are on the right track
Black is 120 feed
White is the neutral
Green is ground

There should be 3 wires black off the breaker, white , green ground coming out of the gennie

Thanks both for the info, I think Im on the right track. But can someone just confirm for me, it looks like BOTH the Green AND the White wires coming from the Jayco Chassis get grounded to the Onan Chassis. Is that correct? They both have "loop" connectors at the end, so they obviously go to a post for attaching.

Can someone look at their Onan and see if the Green and White wires get grounded at the same point?

Many thanks, I dont want to hook it up wrong and then try to fire it up!

If you look at the diagram 007 posted it looked like the green and white get grounded need to check it out there is spec codes that show on the diagrams match your up to the diagram but most I seen they both go to ground bolt
