New Champion portable inverter generator
We're headed cross country in a few days and recently purchased an inverter generator (3650 running watts) with an eye toward plugging in the rig (30A) for keeping the fridge cold and running a few things during occasional evenings at Harvest Hosts or other off-grid situations.
I'm having difficulty with the section on grounding in the owners manual. I know what grounding is in a general way, but the instructions leave me not knowing exactly what I'm supposed to DO. Have a grounding rod (copper, 3/8" x 4 ft) attached to the generator? I've never heard an RVer mention doing this, but the manual is placing great stress on the situation. It mentions this unit having an floating neutral ground. What am I missing here?
