Please provide a picture of the 48v converter and a picture of the fuse block you are trying to hook up . . . makes it easier to explain . .

I found it:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-DC-Conver...item19c7f50a8a

I don't understand how it only has one neg? Mine has 2 negs, 1 in from batt pack and 1 out from converter. I guess the neg is shared from the battery pack? So, Yellow goes to Battery #1 pos and black goes to Battery #4 or 6 neg. You would get your +12 volts from the red and neg from battery #4 or 6 neg. Do you guys agree?

Mark: Use your meter and test my theory.

Yes . . correct . . all 3 wire converter/reducer install instructions refer to "sharing" the common ground wire . . . one could install a fuse block that contains a ground buss to share the ground with accessory components . . that way only one wire goes back to battery pack's negative terminal . . . such as this one:

or at O'Rielly's"
