Grounding

What are you using for the ground source? We had the problem of getting bit when using electric power tools run off the fire truck, the only way you could ground it was to run a wire to a ground sourse like a rod driven in or a water pipe.

While it doesn't come anywhere close to the 8' copper plated steel rod required by code, I ground my trailer with a metal tent stake and some ground wire. But most of the outlets on the trailer (other than the bedroom, converter, microwave, and electric hot water element) are GFCI protected and will trip if there's the slightest difference in current on the hot and neutral lines.

I just bought two pairs of the Mueller shrouded banana clips for my parallel assembly, but I cannot figure out where the small white plastic part goes. I assume it slips over the metal prong, but in which direction? And does it push all the way up over the hole and against the top ring on the metal prong?

It's a compression fitting that goes over the wire insulation and is snugged down by the rear plastic piece.

Does the small end of the compression fitting end up sliding into the hole in the metal piece? It doesn't seem like there is room for that fitting to fit and still screw the end-piece all the way down.
