Thanks. My knowledge is basic here. I understand the potential safety
issue regarding you becoming the path to earth, but what about boat issues?
A galvanic isolator
stops stray dc current
coming through your ac shore power
lead when plugged into a marina (assuming there's a problem). The potential stray dc current
is separate from the ac just using the same line as your connected to all other boats to some degree? Can a generator
(Honda with a floating ground) supplying an isolated ac source to a onboard battery charger
create a dc electrolysis
issue or other problems ? I'm thinking not?
What I'm asking is besides from the possible safety
concerns that come from this what boat issues are created by having a voltage difference between the ground and neutral?
I ask because my reverse polarity glows a little and I've noticed a little galvanic corrosion
on the ss swim ladder, underwater zincs aren't doing bad.
