I have a few questions about an alternator. I have a m25 on a 1986 Catalina 30
tall rig. My first question is what is the amp output of that engine alternator?
My second question is about how it is wired. I have a clipper bm-1 battery
monitor I just installed. I have everything working for the most part as it is
monitoring my house bank and can pick up the drains of all the electrical stuff
and the change from solar. What I am wondering is how to get it to se the
My setup is as follows. I have the battery switch that has bank 1 and 2 all and
off. On bank on 1 have two batteries one is 85ah and 140ah connected together.
Bank 2 is the starting battery.
The bmr picks up everything from bank 1 just fine. I can but haven't wired it to
bank 2 yet. My question is where will the alternator put it's charge? Does it
just put it back into the starting battery or is it wired to the electrical
panel so it will change all banks? Do I have to change the dale to all to charge
all battery's from the alternator?
