Re: When charging- Engine on Forward or Neutral?

Simply put no.

In fact the opposite is true - diesels do not like to be run unloaded - and even if he had a whooping huge 200 amp alternator that's not enough load (about 5hp).

Well, there is one reason, captain said so.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
