Sooo, West Texas, where did you ground your switch?? I just received a DC toggle switch (green) with a light in it. Looks like I'll need a separate ground also.

Back in the far left hand corner under the sink, there is a called hole with two wires going through it. I ran my ground wire through that hole with the other two wires. If you pull of the lower fridge screen outside, On the lower left side, you will see the two wires coming through the hole. Just to the right of the hole and on the floor almost in front of you, you will see a grounding bar. I connected my wire to that grounding bar. Everything worked peachy keen, so it made a good grounding point for my switch. 👍🏻
If you scroll back, you will see the picture that I posted. The pink and wires are supported by that grounding bar. I attached to the same lug as that little black wire.
