I'm finally getting around to hooking up the inverter
half of the inverter
/charger I installed in my boat 9 months ago. According to the instructions, I'm supposed to isolate the ground and neutral of the inverter
-powered circuits from the general ground and neutral of the shore power connection, presumably for safety reasons. Easy enough. Or so I thought. I've been taking the ground wires off one by one and then going around the boat with an outlet tester until I find the outlet that no longer has a ground, then if it's one I want on the inverter
, moving it to the inverter ground block. One of my outlets seems to always be grounded, even though I've disconnected every ground wire. I can't figure out how that is possible. Any ideas on how I can identify where it is getting its ground from? Any thoughts on a more efficient procedure to do the neutrals, since I'm getting darn tired of turn off the power, climb into lazarette, remove wire, climb out, turn on power, test all outlets, repeat.
BTW, I've been away from the forums for a couple months... I went on vacation, then I got a new job (which, gasp, actually requires me to work!). I've got a huge backlog of posts to read
Hopefully I'll be more active henceforth. I've been doing a ton of sailing, though!
