If you have an DC/AC Inverter with a AC Transfer switch (so it also connects to grid power AC/110V to pull power from the grid when/if the 12V battery source drains down), and the inverter instructions say to ground the metal body, with provided grounding screw, is it a good or bad idea to ground the Inverter body to a ground rod if the Inverter will simultaneously be plugged into a GFCI A/C Receptacle?

    $\begingroup$ Hi, this is more of a diy.stackexchange.com question. Grounding and Neutral connection of inverters is a complex topic, see for example the manual of this Victron inverter for some clues. $\endgroup$
