I put a 215 amp alt on my truck to keep up the batteries while snow plowing.
I left the original wire to the passenger side battery and added a new wire and 175 amp inline fuse to the driver side battery, where the plow is wired to. Also added a heavy wire to the alt ground lug and ground on motor. I did all the searches and never really got a proper wiring diagram for the small plug. The plug has 3 pins and a jumper which is not used and plugs right in to the new alt. The alt was great, plowing with lights on and heater blower running, the volt gauge did drop some but plow lift never slowed down. Alt only lasted 1 1/2 months . Was a Champion rebuilt that I bought from Canadian Tire, because was only $332 and $10 core when NAPA was $1200 and $280 core. They replaced the alt but before I put it back on I was wondering if anybody has anymore info on whether I wired it properly or if I should do something different.
