How/where do I bond my new converter?

I just replaced a univolt with a new converter and 12V distribution panel in my '72 overlander. Everything went well except that the univolt I removed was not bonded to the trailer and I have no idea where to bond the new converter to.

I purchased 5' of 8 AWG wire, color green, and have it attached to the converter. I'm just waiting to figure out what to bond it to.

My converter is located under the tub on the curb side in the rear of the trailer. I access the converter through a door in the side of the trailer or by removing the bed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Are you trying to ground it? If so, simply attach the wire to the lug provided on the converter, and bolt or screw the other end to any part of the interior skin, frame, channel, or even the ground lug for the breaker panel.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
