I have a 1000 watt power inverter that I want to connect to a marine battery to make a portable off-grid back-up generator. I was planning on using a small dolly to transport the generator unit. How should I go about grounding the inverter to minimize the chance of electric shock?
The instructions for the inverter state:
"The Chassis Ground screw must be connected to
a grounding point, which will vary depending on
where the unit is installed.Use a #8 AWG copper
wire (preferably with green/yellow insulation) to
connect the chassis ground screw to the grounding
� In a vehicle, connect the Chassis Ground to the
chassis of the vehicle.
� In a boat, connect to the boat grounding
� In a fixed location, connect the Chassis Ground
screw to earth ground by connecting to a
ground rod (a metal rod pounded into the
earth) or other proper service entrance
