We ran a positive wire to solar system. But not ground wire.
Where does the front battery ground run too? What is it grounded to?
Will run a new ground wire to the solar if I can find the location in the front.
Picture of your battery ground would help.
The red part of your question is, I think, the problem.... You say,
"We installed solar"
(so this is not a standard Keystone solar system?)
"Did not use the front battery"
(So you disconnected it? Threw it away or put it in the garage, and now you're trying to reinstall that battery or are you trying to use that cable to connect to the "new solar system" or are just what are you trying to do with that cable???)
"It was removed and now we run off our lithium solar system."
So, "You eliminated the OEM front battery and disconnected all the wiring? What part (if any) did you keep and connect to your modified solar system, and where did you connect those OEM wires? And, finally, which lithium solar system" did you install and how did you install it? Did you still use the Giggy Box (assuming your trailer is a recent model with that OEM equipment"
So, depending on "what you did to eliminate the OEM battery electrical wiring" and whether you replaced it with "a large enough lithium solar system" (some people have installed a small, 25 watt solar system with a "cell phone sized battery" like the ones used to power a single LED security light).. Others have installed "very large 400-1000 watt solar systems with 2, 3 or 4 100 amp hour lithium batteries, which would be capable of replacing the OEM battery system. Depending on "what you installed" it may be a replacement for the OEM battery, it may be intended to augment what you disconnected or it may be intended to replace the OEM system....
What "lithium solar system" did you install? What are the specifications for "that system's lithium battery bank" ??? and What are you now trying to do? Are you attempting to "reinstall the OEM system" or are you "just looking to determine where to reattach the ground wire? If you're looking to "just reattach the ground wire" then with the OEM battery removed from the system, where are you going to connect the other end of that cable?????
Lots of questions, I realize that, but "the ultimate questions are:
What did you do to remove the OEM battery from the system and how is connecting that "cable from a removed battery" going to do with your "new and not OEM solar system" ?????
