    Inverter wiring-gctid821680

    Which side of the galvanic isolator should the ground wire from the inverter hook up to? Shore power side, or to the other side?

    I don't have the inverter yet so I can't look at the instructions at present. It will wire in through a manual DPDT switch so it can only be on shore power or inverter.

    1.... your instructions will guide you.

    2.....Unless your Inverter is equipped with an Auto Transfer feature, the correct method for switching between S/P and Inverter power would be to use a Rotary Transfer switch.

    You would change the Generator decal to now read "Inverter"
