Wiring of Freedom inverter/charger to battery system

Seems that every time I try to add something to battery system (a common four 6V battery system) I mess up. Last time after adding mineral oil I got wiring messed up because I wiped some of my labeling off in doing the work. This time I did just fine until I touched ratchet on P post of #3 accidently to N post of #2 and blowed cell out of new battery (#1). That I can fix with another battery. But then other things "went south" from there in my thinking. My question is that I have one small cable that I question where it goes. It is the small cable OF TWO coming from I believe the Freedom unit. One I know goes to 2nd battery from right (we will call battery #3) and attaches to Negative post. The other in question either goes to battery #1 or #2 and I do not know which and if if Negative or Positive post.

I am embarrassed and admit to be so not good at electrical. Oddly DC system is working with blown cell but I feel I should not tune on charger(?) and get new battery as quickly as possible.

SAVED: Found diagram Theberrys kindly sent me last time I had wiring problems. Thanks again to them.

I'd recommend you get someone to help if you feel unclear. You can get into trouble with high current and battery gases if you feel unsure. A blown cell isn't a simple event and could have exploded. Just my 2 cents for you.
