I’m installing the shunt tomorrow and am clear on most things in terms of no loads on the battery side etc. The manual says to “connect the negative of the electrical system to the m10 bolt” . There are no wires of this connection depicted in any of the diagrams and I am not sure how to tackle this. I had thought it was a simple case of taking all load wires off the battery, attaching these to the shunt and then attaching the shunt to the battery via a suitably large cable….am I correct?

The battery cable needs to have terminal that fits M10 bolt.

Thanks for the reply , install went well , sorted the ground query , went to connect it up and sure enough my wires had M8 lugs!. I got some M10 lugs yesterday and will complete the job this week.
