12V panel

Installing a new converter and not sure where the 12V lines from it go on the panel. I am assuming it is to the fuses in in the highlighted area of my photographs. Someone let me know please.

Thanks
David

Looks correct. It would be the heavier guage wire, that feed the rest of the fuses.

I agree

with Balgrn. While you are in there, take the time to remove the large gauge wires,and clean their contacts. After cleaning, make sure they are tight, and rub a good coating of Dielectric grease on them.
These wires should go to the battery/batteries and to the converter/charger. The other side shoud be directly connected to the fuse panel.
Clean, tight contacts are the life of a good system after the installation of high quality batteries and charger.

Steelbird - What you say is so true

Many of the mysterious electrical problems in a Airstream can be traced to bad electrical connections. Corrosion, Temperature swings, Vibration and time all contribute to high resistance electrical connections. For some reason, grounds seem to suffer the most.

Cleaning and tightening of electrical connections should be a routine maintenance activity.
