OK, I've contacted Honda with my concern and they seemed a little uncertain as how to answer my question. So, I figured I would get a few opinions from you folks:
My new Honda EU3000is has a floating neutral. Supposedly, when this unit is to be utilized with a transfer switch for connecting to the existing power panel this is the recommended setup. This eliminates any ground loops.
Now, I won't be using a transfer switch NOR will I be connecting to the existing power panel. I will be using the inverter as a STAND-ALONE unit and will simply run an extension cord to whatever I want to power. That being said, do I need to run a ground wire from the units grounding terminal to a nearby grounding rod?
I realize the unit will function without the ground wire, BUT will things be safer with a ground wire connected? If not, I don't guess I will bother!
Your input is appreciated. Thanks!
