Wiring diagram 1984 Scamp

I'm hooking up my new Intelli-power 9200 converter in my 84 Scamp 19'. Unfortunately when I took the old converter out 3 years ago I didn't keep track of where the wires go. At that time there were wiring diagrams in the documents center. What happened to them? My question is I have a 3 wire bundle that went to the old converter and need to know where the wires go. One is white, one is blue, and one is black. The white and black are pretty self explanatory but the blue not so much.

Thanks but that diagram appears to be for a much newer Scamp. Is there an older diagram available?

Okay I pulled my battery and it has 2 black wires connected to the positive side and 2 white wires connected to the negative side. Looking at this diagram it doesn't show any grounds and it doesn't show any positive or negative side of the battery. I'm baffled. Is this proper?

I agree that its confusing. However the diagram is 100% consistent with how my 1978 Trillium 4500 is wired.

- white wire is common = negative battery post (note that it is connected to all sidemarker lights and tail lights), and black wire = positive battery post. Even more confusing is that in cars, black wire = negative battery post and red wire = positive battery post.
- "ground" is a confusing and misleading term. In cars, the negative battery post is wired to the vehicle chassis (ground of sorts, but not safety ground), and the vehicle chassis provides the negative conductor instead of using wire. In FGRVs, this is NOT done, i.e., the frame is not used except sometimes for brakes.
