....And would I remove it to attach the black from off shore, or just for both in one lug?
(Zoom in, loose ones on the bottom)
Cable Connectors secure the wires to each box. Definitely use them on all terminations, purchace at HDept or Lwes.
I see one PVC connector in your picture.
Are you attaching conduit there?
The tiny jumper, you mentioned...
...was being (improperly) used to supply a single 120v feed into both bus bars. One of which was likely double-tapped (provides poor conductivity, no OCPD on the jumper)
This GE panel (good one, imo) is designed for 240v supply, (two 120v or split adapter, ok too)
4-wire supply (blk/red/wht/grn)
First two lugs, remove jumper, replace w/ two ungrounded conductors, one in each lug: each conductor supplies two breaker spaces.
Below, one grounded conductor (wht), one ground (grn) into the bar. *they ought not be bonded together.
Bolt in an add-a-lug to bond panel to chassis.
(extra two cents)
There's no "disconnect means" inside the panel, so the main breaker, protecting the conductors supplying this panel, ought to be right next to your bus (or onboard nearby).
Tell us more about your bus. Length, type... what's up with the electrical system? Are you somewhere near me?
Tit for tat.
