Generator not grounded?
I noticed that the circuit checker device that plugs into my electrical receptacle is not showing a Ground when the trailer is hooked up to my running Yamaha EF3000iSEB generator. There is a stud on the panel where I have hooked up a 2' stranded wire, wrapped it around a nail and stuck it into the ground.
Is there a more appropriate way to ground the generator or am I doing something wrong? What gauge wire is needed or do I need to use a steel spike?
