    There is a move afoot to get rid of the term "equipment ground" and substitute "bonding". It's supposed to make things easier but I think it just makes Art. 250 more confusing.

    No more than it would be a violation to run AL the line side of a disconnect next to the charger and feed it with copper from there. I done that with hot tubs and steamers.

    You can't have any current flowing if you disconnect the wires and you are going to get weird readings with a digital meter checking them the way you described.
