I hope you installed a three stage voltage regulator as well, or you won't be getting your money's worth out of your new alternator. It should have a program for agm batteries.

The cruising meter (amp/volt meter) will come with a pretty detailed set of instructions. If it's anything like the last two on my boats, there will be a shunt for the negative cable on the battery banks, and a long set of twisted wires to attach to them.
