12V ground wire near water heater switches

Thinking about swapping the black dual water heater switches with ones that light up when on. Lighted switches have 3 posts, one of which is needed for the ground. Had no problem finding the white ground wires in the galley area when I swapped the outdoor light switches.

These are the only six wires available. 2 for each of the switches and two for the error light. No other wires nearby. Is the middle solid white the ground? If not, any suggestions?

The shell is at 12 volt ground. Put a screw in the interior wall or a rib.

Refering to the wiring diagram in the Atwood manual the white wire is indeed ground
