buss bars are pretty common

Home depot has them even look where they have Circut breakers and boxes . it look like a bar 3 to 6 inches long lots of hole s in the sides for wire and screw to tighten them in the bar is about a 1/4 inch square or rectangular in shape . bars are sold in napa westmarine . the wire wire in your wire harness to the car should be the ground bond (run wire to and connect) to the buss bar then run to wire harness. try not to depend on the metal frame of your trailer for a ground. for reasons to long and complex to be explained here not to be snooty of any thing but it has to do with dissimilar metals and corrosion creating weak points in the frame and inconsistant ground.:cheers

busbar

Thanks.

I'll go that route and get a good ground via a busbar via the cable to the truck.

Howdy, I`m assuming that you have a battery in your trailer and there must be a ground wire from the battery terminating somewhere and that would be a take off point or a mounting point for your central ground which should also be already connected to the ground from your tow vehicle...Benny

Benny K

the ground to tow vehicle is the problem . I agree taping into the battery ground is a good idea if there is an installed battey. That way you have a good ground for chargeing battery on the road.
