Battery Charger Earth

Hi all ....
Installing a new battery charger (ProNautic 12.60P)
Instructions say to connect the "Chassis Ground" (metal back plate of unit) to the "boats bonding system"
I have a Jeanneau 44DS.
How would I connect it to the bonding system ???

Re: Battery Charger Earth

To main boat ground / neg bus.
Ideally you'd have a single bus where the battery ground, engine ground, ac ground, and bonding system join. Charger neg and chassis would both go here.

Or neg battery post.
