Well now, THAT is very interesting. When we were at Escape Trailer Industries in November, among the questions I asked was if the ground was a wired ground or through the frame.
On the noon factory tour, Crystal rounded up one of the electrical assemblers, who told me it was a wired ground.
I am most concerned with high amp loads such as the trailer brakes, but electronic devices also love good grounding.
When I go to pick up my 17, I'll have to remember to take some extra wire; got to have good grounding. Chassis grounding, with the associated potential (yeah, pun intended) for corrosion, is not the best.
