I know there was a brand, but I lost it in the chaos of planning......

Can a stock alternator power these things or do you need the upgraded alternator?

Good question which I didn't want to have to answer, so I ordered the heavy duty one.... (250 versus 150)

Because.....

Driving at night, wipers on, radio going (engine wants some too) and then asking for a boatload of Amps for the house bank it would probably work......

But overkill is good.

With the optional remote control you can set the charge profile on the Sterling unit to anything you want. It is completely customizable.
