I just received my new Progressive Dynamics 4360 All in One system identical to the one shown previously, just in the 30amp version.

I have a question regarding the charging line coming from the TV. It's not listed on the manufactures diagram, but would I attach the Blue charging wire coming from the TV up to the "Battery Pos" connection on this unit? I snapped some pictures from the original Univolt system before I removed it, but accidentally deleted them.

On my 75 TW the charge line from the TV is also one of the 12 volt circuits and inputs through one of the fuses (circuit #5). The "Battery POS" is the +12 volt line from the trailer battery.

After looking over the wiring diagram, I just now realized that. So this being the case, I would just hook it up like a normal circuit? I'm no electrician, but that seems kinda strange to me and the way that it would still charge the trailer battery still doesn't make a connection in my head....but I guess that it works..

All the 12 volt lines are tied to a common bus. All the circuits, the battery and the output from the converter. By putting 12 volts to the bus from that circuit you are putting it into the battery.

Thanks for the info and a headache for when I begin to hook up my new system. Now I just have to run the new 120v wires over and I should have power in the trailer again..... Will probably add a couple of new drops in for future use since I have lots of new spots to add circuits. One more step towards recovery

I purchased a Inteli-Power 4560 and am installing it in the front area of my AS. I have re-ran the 120v cables so they converge now at the installation point of the 4560. The 12v wiring has been a little more confusing that I had thought it would be. There are a couple of wires in the AS that the 4560 accommodate out of the box (i think). The 456S only has a single place to connect the battery so there is no place to terminate all the positive (red) and negative(red) cables. I have a couple question for those of you that have already made the conversion:
  1. The 4560 does not have a buss bar to terminate all the negative 12v cables. So do I just install a buss bar external to the 4560 and then bring a single 12v negative (white) to the 4560?
  2. The 4560 does not have a place to terminate the blue main charge line form the 7-way. Should this just terminate at a positive (red) bus bar?
  3. Is a fuse necessary in the main cables coming from the battery to the respective pos and neg buss bars?
I have attached a wiring diagram of how I propose to connect things. Please let me know if there is anything wrong with my design OR if there is a better way to do this? The dashed green lines are neg (white) and the solid red are pos. Thanks for the help!

So I called Progressive Dynamics and talked to a technical service person. He suggested that the charge line from the tow vehicle be connected to the positive battery post. Does this sound right?

yes, it connects to the battery via the junction box (where the 7 way terminates) the charge line lead should be fused so there isnt a hot 12volt lead goin straight off the battery.

the battery should have a thermal fuse in line to prevent shorts.
