I've looked at some pictures of solar panel
installs on the site that look like what I'm trying to do - but I don't notice any grounding wires.
FYI - cross-posted in Casita
Forum as well.
No need for a "ground".
Connect the positive and negative terminals from the solar panel
to the positive and negative terminals of the solar
charge controller. Connect the positive and negative terminals from batter terminals of the solar charge controller to the positive and negative terminals of the battery
Simple as that.
I mounted my charge controller to the frame of the solar panel.
If you're going to be at the NOG in OCT I'll show you how it's all done.
