  1. Awesome! This makes total sense. It is pretty much what my system looks like. The left post is connected to two batteries that go to the house. So if I was to get something like this —-> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000OTIPDQ/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_api_fabt1_PvTUFbDZRC6DX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&pldnSite=1 would I be making things more tidy and less complex?
  2. I just did what you recommended and voila. Turn the ignition to start and the battery/alt light came on. So... process of elimination would lead me to believe that the diode is no longer directing electricity to the truck battery? Am I correct?
  3. So those boxes that say 12 volt on them with the red wires attached are circuit breakers? Ugh. I want to make this electrical system simple and go back to what the system originally was.
  4. I have a volt meter but need help with how to use it. I will try your setup. I know the wire on the left goes to the truck batter and the one in the middle is directly connected to the alternator and the wire on the right is the one going to the motorhome batteries (yes, there are two of them. One in then engine bay on drivers side and one under the seat in motorhome).
  5. Hi all! Newbie here who just bought a 1984 sunrader on the Nissan 720 chassis. I drove it from Salt Lake City Utah to Gainesville Georgia without a hiccup until I got to Georgia. Now I’ve replaced the alternator and battery and alt is not charging the system. I have stalled multiple times in the last week. I just took the alternator out and had it tested to make sure It’s working properly. It passed the system check. I went into the Nissan 720 forums to ask about the alternator/battery light not coming on when car key is in start position and was told that it needs to be on in order
