Alternators

This is a cross post from FB.

NOTE: I have GM based engines - This may be a little different for Chrysler based engines.

Someone asked about one wire alternators. Read these links and you may change your mind about moving to a one wire system.

I was planning to move from 3 to 1 wire and read up on the subject and changed my mind. In our systems where charged batteries are very important, remote voltage sensing (I would think) is huge. As we run the "house" on 12v, making sure we are not draining the battery at low RPM is important as we cruise.

More good stuff.
