I'm upgrading to a PowerMax Boondocker. 3 wires run from the original converter. One is positive (see photo), one is negative (see photo), but what is the small white wire (see photo)?

Where do I ground the new converter?

Thanks!

Yours looks way older than mine, but when I upgraded to the PowerMax Boondocker, there where also 3 wires. White, Black and Copper solid wire. Pos & Neg I believe are tied straight into the battery and the Copper wire is a ground to the chassis.

It may be similar on yours, but without the solid copper and different color coding.

Best guess I can offer.

The small white wire goes from the converter to the fuse panel. I don't think it's the ground, but not sure.

Is the white wire used by the control panel to show when the shoreline is connected? If so, I don't need it.

What's the best way to run a ground to the new converter?

Thanks ...jason
