CampLite Truck Campers / Re: Battery Wiring and Charging

David & Mitch, thank you for your response.

David, you are correct that I should be talking of a converter as opposed to inverter.  Many of your comments are helpful regarding the flywheel effect of the battery.  Another good reason to restore the battery installation. 

The specifics for the battery location are different for my model.  It is a Truck Bed Camper CLTC11 similar to the photo at:

The converter is a Progressive Dynamics, Inc. Power Converter System PD4045KA

I have the wiring diagram from the converter.  What I am really interested in is the actual battery location and the leads that connect to the converter.  It appears that the Battery Negative is to be White and the Battery Positive is to be Black.  That is atypical from what I usually work with in residential settings.

A Red wire with an unusual terminal is resting in the compartment where I understand the battery once was.  Then there is also a White wire connected to the frame of the camper.  Again, unusual so I am looking for information.

Thanks for anything you can provide.  A photo of an actual battery connection in a 2014 Livin' Lite CLTC11 Truck Bed Camper would be most helpful.

My son received a Livin' Lite CLTC11  Mfg Date: 6/13/2014 from his father-in-law.  The battery had overheated and was removed before my son received it so that it only runs on shore power.  We want to restore the 12V battery system for more remote camping.  I would like to receive photos of how the battery was originally mounted and any information available on the wiring.  Also, it appears the inverter is in place and presume it to be operational but I am concerned why the original battery overheated.

Any thoughts out there on the stock inverter and it's operation?
