  • Durable ground plates
  • The Newmar Ground Plate is cast of porous bronze material which, when immersed in water magnifies the contact area with the water many times beyond by its outer dimensions. Water penetrates through the plate, creating a ground that is superior to a simple metal plate of the same size. This provides low impedance ground which is necessary for the proper operation of many types of electronics. The shoe/plate is installed on the outside of the hull, below the waterline. The aerodynamic shape minimizes drag.
