Trekka is on a distinguished road
When I decided to triple the house bank size on my boat I knew the stock 60amp internally regulated Delco alternator would not cut it. I found a local shop that builds alternators for emergency vehicles (you know, the kind that have gobs of displays, equipment, and often life support systems powered up and running all the time). This thing is rated at 110 amps continuous output. I had them make a simple mod to take an external regulator, a 3 stage charge controller I bought. Cost of the unit? About $105.
