I want to know what is the relay
Looks more like a circuit breaker. How many wires, just the 2 cables? If it is a relay there should be at least one small wire for control.

If I run it meanwhile wiht the 95 amp will it fry the isolator?
As long as you don't drag the batteries down it won't take that much to recharge and shouldn't hurt the isolator. If you are worried move the battery (cable) that had the most use to the center terminal and the isolator will be out of that half of the circuit.

ALANSD,

The item is a circuit breaker as John said. It is probably a self-resetting breaker. I would check the amperage rating so you know what is considered an overload by the original installer. If you are increasing the output of the alternator and you are increasing the carrying capacity of the wiring; it stands to reason the CB might be too low a rating and cause problems of its own. Never hurts to check!!

Take care.

muchas gracias mi amigos. Of course I want to start her up and run it and see how I did, I just didi not want to fry the isolator. I will try disconnecting the coach battery before I do that as it is on the list to be replaced.

not to worry alan. you dont need to replace any thing . the cb is a fifty and it will trip before you fry the isolator. the fact you inslalled a 150 amp alt doesnt mean you will generate 150 amps
if your batterys go dead or short then you might be in trouble the alt will try to pick up the load and fry the iso and wiring. i loked at a 63 310 that had the starter cable short to the frame and it made a mess, but didnt kill the alt. the cb should have tripped but didnt.

Well I cranked 'er up today and the voltage meter was smiling at me 14+ volts with every light/radio/signal/etc on. Great!

I am looking at getting a 200 amp load isolator from a friend, so I hope to get that on in a week or so.
Now I can get back to playing with the rear air bags.
