Need help with wires and 12 volt timer

Need some step by step help. I have a 12 volt timer 
I need to know how to connect the wires. What tabs to use and how to connect to the timer. I am a novice but trying hard to figure this out. The timer is for our RV frig btw.

Connect the + battery to one of the power side tabs on the timer. Connect the - battery terminal to the other power side tab on the timer.

Run a small jumper wire from the + input tab over to one of the switch tabs. Connect your refrigerator + wire to the remaining, empty switch tab. Finally, connect your refrigerator - wire to the battery - terminal.

The switch allows current to flow through the + wires when closed and breaks the current flow when open.

Try looking for a manual or data sheet on the timer. Just start googleing any information on the timer that you have.

I tried believe me LOL. Nothing except how to connect the wires ONCE they are tabbed and ready to set. I need the help before that. I need help how to tab the wires. Thanks!
Look at the back. There should be a switch symbol, and a power symbol. Follow them....

They have both but not understanding what you mean to follow?
Connect 12V to one of the switch pins AND one of the supply pins - it looks on the pictures I have that you can connect the +ve supply to either pin.

Connect your load to the OTHER switch pin (assuming the current rating of the switch is OK for the load)

Connect the -ve supply to the other side of the load AND to the other supply pin
