Sorry JD, I had to run and maybe missed one of your questions SILLY ME, MY BAD. I been mowing today plus coating my RV roof......

There is indeed a time when the gennys case/frame would be earth grounded......

If its configured as a "seperately derived source" (like a utility transformer basically) its Neutral would be connected to a Grounding Electrode (driven into earth rod or rods perhaps just as Neutral on a utility transformer)

The NON FLOATING Neutral would also be bonded to the gennys case/frame (just like transformer can) thereby the gennys case/frame is also earth grounded ........

Again, if its NOT a seperately derived source (Floating Neutral, only requires 2 pole xfer switch etc) then the gennys case frame needs to be wired to the Equipment GroundING Conductor (Remember thats NOT the same as the into earth GroundING Electrode).

I think Glen and I would agree any existing service entrance GroundiNG Electrode (say a driven rod or rods) would suffice for a gensets GroundING Electrode if one were required...If the genset only serves plug and cord connected equipment from onboard receptacles, a GroundING Electrode isnt even required, however

There, this and my other and Glens post OUGHT TO HAVE YOU COVERED, but if not hey were here for ya
