The Victron IP22 is grounded through the plug and double insulated, so you don't need any additional grounding lug. It also full replaces your existing converter. Remove the Iota and install the Victron.



Thank you Rando, one day I’m going to have to drive to Boulder and buy you a beer.

Another dumb one. The Iota is not plugged in to anything, but hard wired. Assuming I’ll just need to clip the plug off and hard wire? Guessing they are all sold with a plug for AC supply, knowing that the plug may be disassembled?

From a technical perspective, cutting of the cord and hard wiring is just fine.   There maybe a slight chance that would cause issues with your warranty, so another option would be to plug into the 120V outlet for your fridge (if the camper has one) or buy a short extension cord, and cut the socket end off, hard wire that into the breaker panel and plug the charger into the socket.
