    Default Battery charging

    I am in need of a simple idiot proof diagram to wire my David Brown 885 so that it charges the battery.
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Welcome to TBN..

    If you mean you want it to charge while its running, put a GM 10 SI single wire alternator on it. That's if it has a 12V system. There are also 6V one wire alternators. Ebay has many to choose from.
    If you are talking about when it is parked outside, HF sells solar chargers that hook to the battery. I have two of them keeping my two trailer batteries charged. If inside, HF also sells plug in wall cube trickle chargers. I use them in winter on car batteries stored in the garage. Solar chargers are about $15, cube trickle chargers about $10.

    what do you have on it now?

    an internally regulated alt?

    externally regulated alt?

    generator and regulator?

    post what you have and what it is or is not doing.

    I may ask you to do some tests on the genny and reg using jumper wires, and observe the back of the regulator.. or if an alt.. there are a few tests depending on type as well.

    what is your battery voltage and ground setup?
