I can never figure out how people think this system is complicated. It's like two seperate charging systems wired in series. It is no more difficult to troubleshoot than a standard 12v system except there duplicate pieces. Not only does it have a lot of power ability but if alternator one dies, you can simply swap it out for number two to get home.[/Quote
A couple of years ago my son was going to a local college for diesel mechanics. I had him take my 1009 to check out the compression etc, basically give him something to do for lab. The instructor there looked at the charging system and told him I had done some modifications to it and he, the instructor, said it couldn't work. My son brought it home and told me that. After I came down from the ceiling my son and I had a little 24 volt Electrical 101 on it. I still can't believe someone who's supposed to be teaching this stuff had no idea. I'm not the brightest crayon in the box but I figured it out.
