Okay, have some time off today and it's not raining. Took the box with me to lowes this morning. The guy working in the electrical section said what I think has been said here already, on the left side he said that is a ground bar and not a neutral, it's labeled for equipment ground only. He said put the screw back in and all grounds to that side along with the ground rod I drove in the ground. Said the two sides are not connected unless I also put the other green screw in the neutral side.

That's what I think Ray had suggested here already, the instructions for the box say only use xxx model grounding bar if another is need which lowes does not have, I would have to return to the electrical supply on Monday to purchase one. Question is does the guy at lowes know what he is taking about. ..
