Does Yamaha Generator Need Grounding Rod when Used with 50 Amp Travel Trailer

Question:

I just bought a Yamaha 4500 inverter gen to power my 50 amp travel trailer. 1. Do I need to ground it with a grounding rod? 2. Do I still need to use my surge protector as I do when hooking to shower power?

You do not need to drive a grounding rod into the ground at your campsites when using your Yamaha generator (or any standard generator) to power your 50 amp RV. Surge protector is probably still a good idea although your Yamaha generator is pretty advanced and most likely would not need one under most circumstances.

For a 50 amp circuit defender we have the part # CAM55313 which will work great.
