But with all due respect, electrical safety isn't about opinion. It's about scientific testing and gathering empirical data, then getting peer review from other engineers and electricians. There's way too much "opinion" on the Internet and not enough testing. I personally will design and setup a full-scale generator/RV bonding experiment and try both copper and resistor bonds, then measure the results for electrical shock hazards. I'll then run this by my personal group of electrical engineers around the country, and we'll all put our minds to interpreting the results. I'm pretty sure nobody else will go through this much effort to confirm a theory.
If anybody has schematics or diagrams to support or refute the safety of copper G-N bonds, I'm all ears. I'm not 100% sure of all of this until I finish running experiments this summer, but once I do there will be a formal statement and proposal to the RVIA and NEC about how this should be addressed in future code.
