I'm in the process of converting my 53 to 12 volts. I purchased THIS [amazon.com] voltage reducer to drop it back to 6 volts for the heater motor. My concern is there are a hot and ground wire for both input and output. I believe the heater has only a hot wire and grounds to the body. Would I wire both of this converter's ground wires to the body then connect the converter's input hot to the incoming 12v feed and the converter's output 6v wire to the heater motor? I can think of no other way to do it but thought I'd ask first.

Save a life, adopt a senior shelter pet. The three main causes of blindness: Cataracts, Politics, Religion. Name your dog Naked so you can walk Naked in the park.
I suspect you know that you can install a 12V motor.
On the website link above there is a Q&A. The attached is a response. It says you can tie both black wires together as a neutral. DC voltage doesn't have a neutral like AC but both black wires will be connected to a ground.
