|Scenicruiser generator challenge||Richard Bryan||5-4-03|
Does anyone know anything about charging systems in these buses. The new batteries that I just bought and installed are discharging. I have hooked them up both + to ground and - to ground and they are doing the same thing both ways. This cruiser has been setting for 4 years, runs great but to charge to the batteries.

|Richard, go to a sparky, for 2 <> 12 batts volt conected for just 12 volts its simple but make sure you know if its - to earth or + to earth first, most cars/trucks are - to earth... for 24 volt its simply conecting by a link strap from + to - from 1st to the 2nd batt so assuming you bus is - earth... No 1 batt is - to earth then + to the - on the 2nd batt and lastly + to the alternator/regulator...get it (-:|

|Is it the original 65-85 amp GM generator voltage regulator setup it does not charge at idle. I believe it is 12-1400 RPMs before it starts charging. If the voltage regulator box is silver, and about 1 1/4 feet, by 1 foot it's probably original.|

Thank you for the information on the batteries, the second half of your message about the generator did not come through. Could the discharging challenge be in the regulater?
