Yes, your description is correct, because you know the manufacture uses GREEN wire to identify the neutral!
Curts description is the way is should be wired.
You think green is green, no green is white.
"2nd pic shows the appliance ground wire bonded to neutral instead of with the grounding conductor..."
That is the neutral wire, the manufacture uses green for the neutral.
Just remember, bring your mind reader with you when you work on appliance.
