Max Thank You, Thank You. I received the service and the parts manuals. Not sure what happened to the 3rd manual. If not to much trouble could you please resend the 3rd manual. The two issues I'm attempting to resolve right now is (1) from my 12v source where do I connect the negative to the generator. (2) I want to use the generator in remote, I need the part number to order the cable and connector to accomplish this.

The operators manual should be in your box.

The ground cable is attached to a stud through the end of the generator section at about 11:00 on the one I checked. Anyplace on the generator or engine frame should work fine as long as you have a "good electrical bond", I would recommend a coarse star washer between the cable & the frame. "IF" there is a bonding strap from the mounting plate the generator sets on to the generator, you could ground to that plate. If you are going to mount it in a vehicle, I would bond the unit to the vehicle frame also.
