Default Factory Location for Voltage Reducer (G29)

I ordered a voltage reducer for my fleet G29 w/6-8V. This one:

Does someone have pics of how it's wired up and the factory location for one? I want it to go in the stock location and wire in like a factory one. Thanks!

The factory uses a plate that sandwiches behind the controller, dc converter mounts just below the controller, facing the same direction as the controller.

Awesome. Thanks! Last question: what color wire on the ignition key do I wire the yellow wire from the DC converter to?

Not trying to jack this thread or anything. See my recent thread about the keyswitch. If your converter is like mine, the yellow wire is the positive side coming out of the converter that has been converted to 12v. Your keyswitch has already got 36 or 48 volts going to it. Don't hook it up until somebody who knows more about this than me gives you advice.

Looking at the diagram for yours, they show the converter over the key switch. Can't tell where it goes. BTW, your setup is different. Just trying to help.

I went to install this & thought I had it all figured out, but I don't. Coming off the key switch is 2 wires, red w/yellow stripe & red w/white stripe. The red w/yellow is on the side of the switch that is "ON". I want to tap into this wire near the battery pack, as opposed to running it all the way to the switch. I found a red w/yellow stripe wire that plugs into the RUN/TOW switch under the seat. Is this the same red/yellow wire from the key switch?
I ask because there is also a red w/yellow stripe coming off the FWD/REV switch up front as well (unless the key switch & the FWD/REV red w/yellow are one in the same).
I searched google for a wiring diagram for a G29 but came up w/nothing. Thanks!!!


Just found this link that has all Yammy wiring diagrams.

According to the one for the YDRE, am I correct in assuming the red w/yellow (RY) is all the same throughout the cart AND it's the one I need to connect the key switch wire from my volt. reducer to???
I plan on tapping into it @ the TOW/RUN switch.

Still haven't figured this out. I checked the red w/yellow stripe wire & it shows a constant 42V, even though the pack was showing 51V. The other wire @ the key, red w/white stripe, shows 0V w/key off & 8 volts w/key on. ANY advice would be appreciated!

***UPDATE***
Thanks to pandmautocare for checking his wiring & PingEye3 for the diagram. Both prove it is the RED W/WHITE STRIPE wire @ the key that I need for a key switched wire to power vol. reducer on & off w/the key. Thanks a ton guys!
