4.4 Cables

DC to AC inverters require high amperage to operate properly; connect inverter DC
input terminals to battery with heaviest wire available. See chart below:

4.5 Inverter fuse

A class “T” inverter fuse should be included in all installations.

• GP 2500 - 300 amp fuse
• GP 1750 – 200 amp fuse
• GP 1000 – 110 amp fuse

4.6 Grounding

The power inverter has a lug on the rear panel: "Chassis Ground." This is to connect the
chassis of the power inverter to the ground. The ground terminals in the AC outlets on
the front panel of the inverter are also connected to the ground lug. To ground the GP-
2500, connect grounding wire to one of the mounting screws and sand the connection
before attaching the wire.

The chassis ground lug must be connected to a grounding point, which will vary
depending on where the power inverter is installed. In a vehicle, connect the chassis
ground to the chassis of the vehicle. In a boat, connect to the boat's grounding systems.
In a fixed location, connect the chassis ground lug to earth.

The neutral (common) conductor of the power inverter AC output circuit is not bonded to
the chassis ground. Therefore, when the chassis is connected to ground, the neutral
conductor will not be grounded.

At no point should the chassis ground and the neutral conductor of the inverter be
bonded. Bonding the chassis ground and the neutral conductor of the inverter or
connecting the inverter to household or recreational AC distribution wiring will damage
the unit and void the warranty.


The negative DC input of
the power inverter is
connected to the chassis.
Do not install the power
inverter in a positive
ground DC system. A
positive ground DC
system has the positive
terminal of the battery
connected to the chassis
of the vehicle or to the
grounding point.


Do not operate the power
inverter without
connecting it to ground.
Electrical shock hazard
may result.
