You are correct, they SHOULD be, however good practice and NEC do not allow you to ground a branch circuit in a different box, even if they Are tied together.

That outlet and the light over the table are the only 120V outlets in our 2004 that are not on the inverter. I find that very handy for our little heater and no way would give it up. Without it, the wife plugs in a hair dryer and pop - everything on the inverter goes down.

Hmmm, on our apex, the receptacle behind the passenger seat is on the inverter, as we came off that one, and added one under the new cabinet we had added along that wall (mid-door model w/big window). I keep a weather alert radio plugged in and on all the time in that plug-in. The kitchen plug, the MW, the one on the back kitchen wall, and the bathroom sink area are all on the inverter as well. I don't use the MW unless I am plugged in to shore power or the genset is running, bad for the transformer in the MW, does not get the right starting current, there is a lag. Have only tripped the inverter off line one time, and that is when the microwave receptacle failed and shorted out, once I had a residential type installed (required a new half-depth box so it would screw in) have never had a issue. Should learn how to fix all the other ones since then they all would be better quality.
