My question is if I attached my ground wire from my inverter to the electric plug I have inside my house that is attached to my gas fired generator am I asking for trouble. The gen is grounded on its lug and so is the inverter. Overkill?

Re: Grounding?

Depends on your inverter.  If it has a GFCI on the AC out, then grounding it in your house elsewhere will cause the GFCI to trip.  If it does not have a GFCI, then it shouldn't cause any harm.  That said, common advice is that you should only ground your system in one place.  Not sure if there's a good reason, or just rule of thumb.
