wiring to the converter

Okay Folks, I need a little insight here. I usually photograph everything as I disassemble but I must have missed this. I am wanting to re-attach the wiring to the converter and I know the answer is simple but I don't want to do this wrong.
the Allanson converter has 3 wires on the 12 volt side. Blue, White, Red. the red connects to the positive terminal (so in my set up a black wire - which has been consistent throughout). the white and Blue complete the 12 volt load circuits. So here is the question:
1 - does the white from the battery negative terminal connect to the white wire in the converter?
2 - on the load circuit side (my lights are wired with white and black with white being -), I am assuming the white connects to the white in the converter (and the black load circuit wire connects to the blue?).
3 - essentially I guess I need to know which wire connects to the Blue wire to complete the load circuit?

here are a couple of pics, because everyone loves pics and hopefully they clarify my questions. Thanks for the help.

red, white and blue...;)

the blue wire goes to your "unfiltered" DC circuits (powered by converter)
the red goes to the battery (positive)
the white is the ground (negative)

Thanks Francois, that was what I needed. I know it seems silly to ask but I just needed to be sure. Wired it up this morning and it all worked great.
