Seems like every time I have a trip coming, I do a big push to work on the van. It's fine for the one trip but then I end up redoing a lot of it. I've "permanently" mounted my back seat twice, and it's a whole day project. I have the ugly rectangular holes in my vinyl flooring to prove it.
But, it's worth it to get it right, even if the project is never done.
So, I'm wondering why the second alternator? My van came with a 150A alternator, I assume that's the base option. Should be plenty of juice available, I've got my 60A owner-output wired to my dual 6v golf cart batteries (235 Ah) and it hasn't blown the fuse while charging and running the inverter-powered dorm fridge simultaneously.
Yep, that's me too. I'm a little picky when it comes to my batteries. I'm currently mulling over several charge while driving options. The best so far is the second alternator running my current inverter and it running my 60 amp converter charger. That will give me 110v for the fridge and a proper 3 stage charging profile for that batteries.
