I have noticed the crimp connector does not look like the highest of quality on mine. Maybe in the off season I will replace the ground cable with something pre-made with better ends..

Don't forget to check the 2nd ground connection, where the ground wire going to the converter connects to the frame. I upgraded my wiring a few years ago, going from an AWG #8 positive wire to an AWG #2 wire. Also added bigger ground wires, both locations, and made damn sure the ground connections to the frame were tight and clean. I sprayed the connections with a couple coats of black paint to help seal the frame connections from the elements.

I also checked (and tightened if necessary) all connections on the converter. Several were a little loose.

SmokerBill, even though I replaced the converter I did not notice there was a bond to the ground at that point. I'll go back and check. Thanks!

Checked it last night. Even though it looked good from the outside and was tight, I went ahead and took out the bolt and cleaned up the leads and put it all back together. It only takes a second, and that's one more thing I don't have to worry about any more.
