i have a 64, and the only black wire I had was up to the battery checker, and it was a much smaller wire. To me it looked like they oversized just about every wire. The stranded wires were almost all #10, and the 2 sets of solid wire looks like they were run to my lights where I had both 12v and 110 running to most of my lights. I basically just hooked all white to neutral and then mapped each of the colors to something in the trailer. Flipped on switches one by one to find out what they went to.

I just discovered that the extra black wire from my univolt goes to the battery checker. I'm pretty sure I understand how things get attached. I will post again after I get it done. Thanks to all for the help.

Later Univolts also have a couple of wires on them that provide a shunt, and can be used to read the battery, and the tank gauges.

It's worth taking that stuff off your Univolt, if it's still there.

I don't think this applies to the '60s models, though...

I did get it in. Thanks to all that posted info. The hardest part was getting the old one out. I installed a 110 box for the PD 6245 to plug into and then the rest was very easy. All the reds and blues went to positive and the whites along with the phantom black went to negative. Check out before and after pics.

Looking good!

What did you fasten the new voltage converter to? Did you build a little base for it, or...?
