Jody-

He's talking about putting the breaker on the negative wire... not the positive... at least that was the way I read it. There will be no breaker to trip in the scenario I mention, since he'll be using a different ground, one that doesn't have a breaker on it...and the positive line doesn't either.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
