This question comes up so many times, that I've developed an Electrical 101 thread with links to many discussions about this very topic, which includes replies from many of the folks who have chimed in here.,5977.0.html

See reply #2 for a very succinct summary of what to do. Get you alternator output off the CV post of the 1-2-B switch and follow btrayfors, Brian's and Maine Sail's advice.

All the best,
