How are most factory installed radio's and other accessories
wired up? Do they use a dedicated return wire to the battery or
are they all chassis returned. If anyone would have the insight 
and experience base with regard to proper wiring and the 
reliability of chassis connections, it would be the factory 
engineers. If that practive varies from vehicle to vehicle depending
on the chassis/body/frame design, then perhaps the best thing
to do would be to follow the factory wiring practice for that 
particular vehicle.
