Default Wiring diagram

I have a Heart inverter in one of the closets behind the bed (PT36). I want
to move it to the spot where the old motor-generator was. There is nothing
located there now but some of the old cables that were associated with that
equipment. The cables are all taped off and they are all hot. I need to determine where they go so I can remove them. There are some other cables there also. I think they are activated by the 'combine batteries" switch on the dash, but I'm not sure. Anyone with any better knowledge?

Wish I could help more Art. When Shane helped me replace my boat anchor Rediline with an inverter (meaning I just handed him tools) we just used the same wiring; which powers the ice maker, TV, a receptacle or two, etc.

You may find that old Redline shelf area gets pretty hot and is subject to getting real dirty due to its exposure to the engine/batt bay. In addition to an exhaust fan to purge hot air out, I have added a filter behind the louvered panel to help filter out dirt. I have thought about moving mine to the closet where yours is currently located, were it not for the noise of the fan.

It has also been suggested I move the inverter to the roof using a rear-louvered weatherproof box, running wiring up the air intake chase. Kinda radical, but the more I think about it the more I like it.

Hi Art--

I never had a Redi-Line, but there's a manual in the files area. I mention it because it shows how to connect it to 12V. It looks like it could have up to to two pairs of battery connections. How many HOT wires did you find?

Lots of ways to accommodate different size battery banks are shown in the the diagrams here:

The attached .pdf file has been uploaded by a few different folks and I use it quite a bit. In my Rediline compartment there are three solenoids, only one of which is required after rediline removal. It's the combiner solenoid for the batteries.

This link may be more accurate for your model year:


I agree that the rediline compartment may not be the best place for an inverter.

If anyone has any photos of a cleaned up rediline compartment on an early PT, I'm sure we'd both appreciate them very much!
