Thread remaining collar (3) onto rod (1). Insert striker bolt (5) into collar. Using hammer, drive rod into ground, leaving
approximately 1 ft. exposed.
Uncoil ground cables (11 and 12). Install one end of both cables to the rod using cable clamp (2). Unscrew the nuts
from grounding lugs (9 and 10) to expose slots in lugs.
Connect the shorter cable to the generator ground lug (10) and tighten lug nut.
Connect the longer cable (11) to the ROWPU ground lug (9) and tighten lug nut.
Place the front door fire extinguisher on the ground next to the ground rod.
Check to make certain that grounding cable (13) is securely attached to grounding lugs (14) and (15). Cable should

Ready Diesel Generator (Figure 2-30, Sheet 2 of 2). (MODEL ROWPU-1 ONLY)
A good ground is required to protect operators and equipment, and to provide lightning
protection. Failure to properly ground the generator, ISO container and high pressure pump
assembly could result in electrocution.
Ground rod must be driven at least 8 (.5 m) deep to be sure of a good ground. A poor
electrical ground can lead to injury or death from electrical shock.
Refer to TM 5-6115-545-12 or TM 9-6115-645-10 for generator operation.
· Ground rod assembly with special ROWPU cables are used to ground the generator and
· Water area around grounding rod site to loosen ground before driving in rod.
Locate the two ground rod sections (1) with cable clamps (2) and collars (3) at a point where the assembled ground
rods can be sunk into the earth at least 8 ft (2.5 m) and where the ground cables will not be ripped loose by vehicle
travel or present a hazard to personnel movement.
Remove collar (3) from end of one rod (1).
Thread striker (7) completely onto one end of rod (1). Secure striker by installing lockwasher (8) and one nut (4).
Slide hammer handle (6) onto the rod and thread remaining nut (4) onto end of rod to form slide hammer assembly.
Thread the hammer assembly into the collar (3) of another rod. Using the hammer, drive the rod into the ground
leaving approximately 3 in exposed.
