12v Grounding
« on: April 26, 2017, 08:55:57 PM »
Hello All,
I have an AUX batt system and am installing components such as a fan/lights/ect.
Should I run the negative wire back to the 12v fuse block or am I OK grounding it close to the hardware on the bare metal of the van body? It would save heaps of wire if i just needed to run the hot wire. Thanks in advance!

With built in wiring, it is best to ground to the body/chassis.
