Can I bypass my Dual Alternator?

Hey guys,

My belt snapped on the way to work last night. I have a new belt and tensioner on the way, but I didn't realize my truck was equipped with dual alternators and the belt I have coming is for a single alternator. I called all local shops and the dealership and theyd all have to special order the belt.

Is it okay to just bypass the second alternator all together? I dont have anything that draws a significant amount of power installed.
