Can i chassis ground my isolated 12/12-30 DCDC

Hi All

Ive run the wrong cable from the starter battery to the house battery via the 12/12-30 and im getting voltage drop of around 1.1v when under full load

Can i chassis ground the isolated version of the 12/12-30 to allow me to double up the cabling for the ve+ running from starter battery to house battery ?

My house battery isnt currently connected to chassis ground (not sure if that makes a difference ?)

Thanks in advance

Jon

You can, it will work, but the high current may cause corrosion.

Hi Kev, does the higher current cause corrosion around the chassis ground point or other places ? Does this connection need maintenance ? Any issues with the house battery not connected to ground ? Thanks
