Default Wiring in my 48-12V converter

Got my parts installed on the plate, now to just install on the cart. The Madjax DC Power Converter doesn't have a ground for the 12V, I am assuming I just run a wire from the (-) on a batter pack to the (-) on the 12V Fuse block?
Thanks in advance

Yes. Almost all converters share the negative (not a ground) between the 12V and 48V side.

Looks like nice panel work, AC electrician?

That's what I assumed but wasn't sure, the cheap one I had before had a separate one. Thanks!

Thanks, Scotty! We design and build control panels for different municipalities. One job perk is the scraps and spare parts that I can use for my personal projects.

If you have the OBC connected, connect your negative wire to the lug on the back side of the OBC where it connects to the controller. This will allow the OBC to add in the current that your accessories use when computing how much of a charge to return to your batteries. Connect the other end of that wire to the negative lug of the fuse block.
