I don't have the room, I could I suppose "Engineer" something to work, and may one day do so, until then I'll live with what I have. it works, but would be nice if I could run everything when motoring without having to crank the generator
I have always been suspicious of how these little things could make that kind of power. If you have looked under the hood
of a Military Humvee and seen how huge these alternators are, you get doubly suspicious.
But what I am still suspicious of is, do you really get all that much more continuous power output from the larger say above 160 amp alternators, than say one rated at 100?
Continuous loads, I don't care what it can make for a few minutes, I want to know what can it sustain, like my Little Yanmar
, 44 HP for one hour, 40 continuous.
I think a test run at continuous load under say 60C atmosphere would be interesting, or heck even if it was 25C, I think a test to see what the alternator
stabilized temp at X load is, one 100 amp alternator
and one much larger, just to see if there is any large difference in continuous output.
Darn it, I wanted a free lunch
