Replace converter with float charger.

I am replacing my 2004 Cedar Creek fiver converter with a Battery Tender Plus float charger during periods of inactive use. My batteries have overheated in the past and lost water with the in house converter. I would like to maintain fully charged batteries for occasional use. My problem is that I cannot identify which wires at the batteries are coming from the converter so I can disconnect them before connecting the float charger. Any suggestions? Is there an online wiring diagram for the fiver? Thanks

Just flip the breaker for your converter then connect the Charger. No need to disconnect the wiring from the batteries. "Ideally" it would be best, but not a necessity just to keep your batteries on a float charge. The wires from your converter are the same as your main +/- battery cables.
