Trying to find out the correct way to hook my AC output of my power inverter to an AC breaker box. From what I have seen you need a special output on ur inverter. Any knowledge would be appreciated!!

    ??  My 1,500W inverter has a spot to connect some 10 AWG house wire and screws to clamp down and then I needed a strain relief device as used in any 'octagon' box...  hth

    What about grounding? The inverter and AC breaker box can't be on the same ground can they?

    The inverter and it's AC sub panel have a common ground.

    What make/model of inverter? The manual should cover grounding and neutral bonding, it's not always the same for every inverter.
