Machine screw + matching hex nut вЂ“ (we’d some laying around from that knows whenever. You could use a self-tapping metal screw, but we wanted to keep the camper exterior as clean as possible and opted to mount inside-out if you wanted to mount from the outside)
Anti-Oxidant Joint Compound вЂ“ improves the conductivity of aluminum electrical connections
Grinder/Dremel for cleansing your steel chassis and wall
Drill + bits to complement your screw option
We never ever thought weвЂ™d be happy a mouse chewed a gap through our plastic wheel well protect.
But right right here we have been. WeвЂ™re nothing or even resourceful, i suppose. This small opening, along side a clip, permitted us to stealthily ground our camper. Directly after we utilized the Dremel and grinder to completely clean our mounting areas within the aluminum wall surface as well as on the framework, we pre-drilled a little gap when you look at the aluminum wall surface when preparing for the device screw. We went the 8AWG cable from our negative bus bar down involving the stud and aluminum wall, down through the mouse opening, and beneath the camper towards the base regarding the wall surface. We included heat shrink band connectors on both ends because it wouldвЂ™ve been too tight to thread behind the studs with the fitting already on the end) after we threaded the wire (. We used the anti-oxidant joint compound per the directions on the tube to increase our groundвЂ™s conductivity as we threaded our ring connectors onto our mounting screws.
We then made a вЂњjumperвЂќ with the 8AWG that is same connecting the camper wall surface into the framework after the exact exact same actions above. Continue reading
