Hi there I have a question about installing a new converter... my old converter failed so I bought an upgraded one... the problem is it came with a new fuse panel and there is no mention of where to put orange wire from original panel in the instructions ....the orange wire was on the opposite end of a glass fuse that the hot wire was attached to.... this is a 83 winnebago brave ...I would upload a pic but can figure out how to

If you want help with your question please give us more details such as old converter model and new converter model, etc. Also which fuse circuit was the orange wire hooked to on the old fuse panel?

I suspect (though it's far from certain) that the old converter had separate outputs for the battery charging and the general 12V use, and the 12V fuse panel is split into circuits that are always on the battery side of things and those that, when the converter is on, were switched to the converter power.

If that's the case, then probably the orange wire needs to be bridged to the other positive connections. Do verify things carefully first; post pictures if you're not sure and people here can probably help.
