    Hello Group,

    I Love these Forums and want to thank Terry Love for them.

    A lot of mistakes people make when installing portable power systems, Is that they do not GROUND them properly.

    Everyone makes a simple fix into a Huge problem.

    Using a proper ground can keep both sides of the Single Phase System properly balanced.


    Have a great day.
