Generator Bonding Plug

Just bought a inverter-generator for use when camping.

Do I need to purchase a bonding plug for it to provide power to the Ollie?

The short answer is yes. Here a little helpful info -

   I wasn't sure myself and found an excellent article that pertains exactly to your question.   The determining factor is whether you have an internal "bonded" neutral and ground... or not, which is called a "floating neutral".     Check out this article and you might find it helpful.   I did.   An interesting thing is that two major inverter generator manufacturers (Honda and Yamaha) have floating neutral which means you need to put on an external bonded plug.   Many of the others have internal grounding hard wired inside the generator.  It would be worth your time to read the attached article.

Check with Oliver. Back In 2019 that plug came with your set up package. It might have changed.

Our 2020 did not come with a bonding plug.
