Re: Alternator wiring issue...

B+ should be wired to common on battery switch D+ should be wired to ignition switch so there is no current running to D+ when the engine is off. With this option you can charge either your house bank or your engine bank or both. This will also allow the shunt to read accurately,provided all connections to the shunt are clean. with this wiring configuration you should not need another regulator other than the internal regulator on the alternator.
