Safer that way yes, if not you could have a leak or short to the body and get an electric shock

Last year in France i was leaning on the van and kept getting a sharp scratch from the sliding door, happened several times then i looked and could see no sharp bits, took me while to realise it was electrical, i had about 120vac leak to the van body through a wet mains connector, not much current but enough to hurt

still not got around to earthing it though :oops:

I thought that is what you were answering but it was in a different thread! I didn't realize that it was here. :D
