I have my alternator connected to my battery and not to my isolator, is that correct? My setup goes....

1. Alternator to truck battery..... truck battery to isolator..... isolator to house battery.

So my isolator has one connection to the truck battery, another to the coach battery and the third to a ignition wire.

Is this correct?

Depends on your isolater. If you have the solenoid style with 2 large posts on top, it would go alternator to one post.Using same post run to engine battery. Remaining post to coach battery. Small screw post for ignition supply wire. You could also have a fourth screw post for ground.

If you have a transistorized unit with 3 top posts, middle post would be alternator attachment, other two to engine battery and house battery .

That's the normal setup for a relay type system.

Thanks guys, I'm troubleshooting mine right now and wanted to make sure it was wired up correctly. Due to the age I opted to buy a replacement and upgrade my wiring to 4awg.
