Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

When removing a genset from the coach, these wires are not supposed to be disconnected from he genset. They are supposed to be removed from the junction box in the coach. This harness is actually part of the genset.

The 2 black wires will go to the circuit breakers.

Both whites and the green will attach to a ground bolt located in the base, underneath the controller. You will need to remove the controller and control box to access this bolt.
