Univolt Negative Load to InteliPower?

Hellooo. I'm installing an Inteli Power PD9200 and I'm wondering (not lost just ...) where on the new unit does the white Negative Load wire go that is on the front of the Univolt Low Voltage Distribution Panel. It's a 1972 31' International Sovereign and I'm using OEM manual for that year reprinted by a fellow up in Canada. 'Lectricity is a mystery for me, no doubt about it
I've read till I'm red-eyed in the forums and I always feel like the answer I may be looking for is just a click away on the next page or in the next post ... just like a good book ... it's a good thang... ... any help would be finely appreciated.

There are four clamps in the back of the unit, next to a group of fuses. Two of the clamps are for the positive wire(s), and two are for the negative wire(s).

Be sure you get them right. If you reverse polarity there is no guarantee that the fuses will keep you from blowing the whole unit.

I don't think the white wire is connected to the Intellipower. It may be a master ground to the chassis. The + and - from the Intellipower go to the back of the fuse panel. See picture.

Question Fuse Panel Necessary?

Hi. The fuse panel in your post looks like the old univolt one. In mine there is an additional glass fused panel/box feed from the battery with a union to the trailer battery.
So two questions: do I need to rig in the Univolt one? I've read a number of post where folks did use the one off the univolt, but since there is already another fuse (12v) box...? The PO may have put this one in and maybe didn't finish because the top right fuse socket (circuit #1 in manual) on the univolt is fried & missing.
If that white wire is the chassis ground then am I right that it goes to the ground lug on the AC side of the Intelipower? I'm going to run a fresh chassis ground to the lug and/or in addition to the white if I understand this right.

Ok, I think it just dawned on me so I'm pulling the plug to get it in before dark. Double thanks for the prompt answers. This is a great place.
