It doesn’t come with a battery hookup but does have the converter and will run 12v off of my tv. I would like to hook up a battery to it but I don’t want to wire it wrong and I can’t find a wiring diagram for it. The only wire that goes from the tv connection to the converter is a black wire (pictured) and it has a connection near the front of the pop up box (also pictured) so I am pretty sure that is where my positive lead from the battery hooks up. But do I connect the wire coming from the tv back into this connection so that it also charges the battery I install? And then just ground the battery with a white wire to the frame? There is a green wire running with the black one but it doesn’t go to the converter. Any help is appreciated

    OK so do I hook up the black wire coming from the 7 way to the battery and then to the black wire going to the converter? And then just ground the battery directly to the frame?

    my battery + was hooked up as below, a fuse at the batt + and spliced into the TV/converter line, the batt neg attached to a chassis clamp under the PU with other chassis commons.
