Now this makes no sense
I'm installing the Blue Seas part 8077 Main breaker, with the "safety ground screw on panel back." I'm doing this because the run to the distribution panel is over ten feet, so I got a utility box to put the switch in. All is well until I go to make the connections. The neutral and hot terminals have big, robust screw connectors to which my crimped ring terminal connect very satisfactorily.
However the ground terminal is a puny, what looks like #6 - 1/2", screw with a 3/8" nylon nut. I've got two 10 gauge wire terminals coming at that and there's just no room for two ring terminals plus the internal ring connector.
What gives? Am I missing something here? The schematic makes it very clear that the AC ground and device ground are supposed to connect there, but there's hardly room for it. Is there some electrician's trick I need to know about?
