inverter wiring

The Morningstar 300 Inverter and many others have an internal bond of its neutral out/white
and ground. If you look at the unit documentation online you can see that.
If you want to run this inverters output to a service panel,offgrid, you want to make sure to disconnect the neutral/ground bond in the panel because you only want one bond.
But what if you run the ground on the Morningstar to a separate ground rod not connected to the panel ground rod. I happen to have 2 different rods about 40 ft apart.
are you ok then just leaving the panel bond tied as normal..???

You seem to be confusing GEC and EGC. Ground wires in the house are for EGC. Ground rods are for the GEC
