The difference it makes is that you can have continuity through a 3A fuse, but the converter will blow it if you try to run the trailer through it. You need to find terminals that are directly connected to the battery plus and minus, or at least through a large fuse. That said the new converter should connect at the same point that the original charger connected to the fuse panel. Also, it would be hard to go wrong connecting the new converter directly to the battery, or on the other side of the disconnect switch from the battery.

The two terminals you speak of are where the Univolt connected and should be where the new converter connects. The positive goes to the terminal that has a buss connected to each fuse. The negative goes to the opposite terminal.
There may be a 30 amp fuse that is labeled "battery". That is where the positive terminal of the battery connects.
Can you post a pic of the Univolt fuse block and one of your new fuse block?
