ST-44 - Installing a Galvanic Isolator

Has anyone installed a galvanic isolator (or had one installed) on their Swift Trawler 44?

If so, where/how did you tap into your ground wire (seems very hard to access...). Any photos or advice would be appreciated. Note, the one I ordered is the Prosafe FS60.

Thanks in advance for your help...
Dave

I think I responded to your FB post.

It gets installed right next to shore power inlet.

There is a breaker box where that enters. Wire gets from from there to Galvanic Isolator and back.

HI
Will you trim the excess green wire? The closer to incoming the better.
