Ok everyone, I need some help.... I'm replacing my burnt out Univolt out with the intellipower 9200. My wires seem to look different than everyone else's. 1st question. My intellepower has a plug.... I don't have a place to plug it in... There is a romex wire going in and seems to power the Univolt. Should I make a a plug receptacle from that romex cable to plug in the intellipower?

2nd question...I bought the fuse panel at the top of the page... But where would I put the 30amp (blue) wire, if the panel only has 20 amp slots?

Hi Jon. Yes use the Romex to make a receptacle. Make sure the Romex has a breaker associated with it and that the receptacle is grounded. Mine is a metal box. See post # 10 about your fuse question. G

TG--thanks for your diagram. I am also not an electrician and will be instaling the Intellipower 9245 into my 1971 Overlander. I've taken pictures of the old Univolt fuse panel and will manually draw everything as I remove it. I've got a question for you TG: in your diagram, is your 'house' label, your trailer battery? Where did you get the 50 amp fuse and two position 50/30 set up? Also, how will I know what wire(s) are to my tow vehicle battery? I did rewire my tv/trailer pigtail, so I guess I could trace it back to the rear of the trailer.
Does anyone out there have a wiring diagram for my trailer? AS 1971 Overlander.
Thanks folks--I LOVE this forum!!!

Yes the "house" is the trailer battery.
I'll have to look through my receipts to find where I bought the two postition fuse holder. Try typing "2 position AGU fuse block" into your search engine. It should take you to a source.
The wire coming from your TV is probably black and it will be connected to one of the terminals in the Univolt. It will be a larger wire with a 30 or 50 amps fuse.

On your new fuse panel. It looks to me like all of the fuses are for the output side and that you connect the converter and battery(s) to the large lugs across the top of the fuse panel.
I can't blow the picture up and read the info. But one would think they would be labeled. Did you get instructions witht the fuse panel?
