Default 2000 Western 42v wiring diagram

In my zeal to clean the battery terminals I forgot to mark the wires so that I would remember which terminal each wire goes to. This is a 2000 Western, with seven batteries, headlights, radio, battery gauge, horn, etc., therefore several wires. The wires I need to reconnect are blue, black, red, red/white and the two red ones that come from the fuse holder. I've seen the EZ GO wiring diagram for the six battery set, but it doesn't have the same number of wires. I found a thread from April 08 regarding this, with some helpful information from Bhfear, but it didn't include the wiring information. Would appreciate any assistance.

The 7 batteries cable up the same as 6 batteries do. No mystery here.
Connect (+) to (-) from one end of the pack to the other. Use your meter to verify you have 42v (or more) between the main (+) and main (-) to insure you have done this correctly.

The small gauge wires supply 12v to accessories. Headlights may be 12v or 36v so a few cell phone pics before you started would be priceless now.
Lets assume everything is 12v (safe starting place). You should use a 48 to 12v reducer but that's another topic of discussion. Assuming you do not have one because Western didn't install them for cost reasons ...

Use your meter to find 12v on your battery pack. Place the red test lead on main (+) and go 2 batteries away to (-) you should read 12-13v.
Note you can find 12v by testing across any 2 batteries in the pack.

Assume the small red wires with fuse are (+) and put them on the main (+) terminal and hold one of the black wires to the (-) terminal where you read 12v with your meter. Have an assistant test the lights or trunk latch or fan... repeat the process for the other black wires. Connect the black wires that make 12v stuff work at this terminal.

I hope this helps
