Re: New Skoolie 1986 Ford/Thomas short-bus

Ultimately your AC circuits are grounded to the shore power main panel. That's why your bus AC panel should be set up as a sub panel with the neutral and gound bars separate from each other.

the neutral is the isolated ground wire, the ground bar is the 2nd ground wire that is connected to a bar that bolts to the box skin. fwiw

Re: New Skoolie 1986 Ford/Thomas short-bus

I did a bit of research at some RV sites and the official word was that the bus frame should always be grounded to the ground bar in the RV AC panel, but should never be wired into the panel's neutral bar.
