7 pin question

I have a 1970 Overlander that I'm still restoring, I'm just wondering how to hook up the 12 volt power coming from the TV. Trailer has a solar system and lithium batteries. Not sure if I should just connect that directly to the battery bank or should it go to 1 of the charge controllers, and if so which one. Thanks

Hard to make suggestion without knowing more about components in your system. Where does the power from the TV go now? Does it have anything to regulate voltage from the TV, such as a DC-DC Converter?

Assuming you have some type of separate controller for the solar panels

Photos and a circuit diagram would help a lot.

The 12 volt power from the TV is not currently connected to anything. I'm not sure how power to that wire is regulated if at all. Solar power goes thru a Victrom solar charge controller.
