Okay, How about sizzle? Can it at least sizzle?
I have put oversized alternators on vehicles, and they nuked the wires going from the alternator to the battery.
This probably won't happen, but it is worth looking into.
Sizzle would be cool!
Alternators work differently than converters, buddy.
I would really dig a good sizzle though!
I think the Univolt is 55amp's... I also believe if you turn EVERYTHING on that you can and read the draw it's right around 55. Thats why they used it. Unless you added or changed something you'll never need more power. BUT... you will be able to supply all the power you need plus recharge your battery's. I tryied mine out and with everything on and having a 200w 4channel amp pretty loud I was under 60amps.
Id switch out the univolt for the intelli just to add the charging wisard. Just to keep the batterys in check. It is alittle work but not that hard. Battery's are costly and if not taken care of don't last.
I have a 80amp unit and ran 4g. from the itelli to a switch, 4g from the switch to the breaker box and the same size wire (14/12,etc.) to draw. I've really put it to use and have no problems. I haven't had a breaker "pop" yet... but that would be because of something at the draw not the intelli.
I wanted to post this seperate so it didn't get lost in the other Univolt Post I made earlier.
Here is the outcome.
Camping World in Kissimmee (Bill was the technician) did a bang-up, A-1, PROFESSIONAL job on the installation. I couldn't have done it better myself and I like all of you take pride in my rig. I have added the before and after pics for anyone interested.
Also, I have a used Univolt that still works (HUMMMMM's) if anyone is interested.
Thank you all for your help with my Univolt issue.
jssmith351, I am interested in your old univolt if the voltage regulator is working fine. Can you tell me what the actual output voltage was when you took it out? If it's around 13.5 volts i really am interested. If over 15 volts the output regulator is shorted.
I am also removing my univolt and replacing it. i wanted to make things new. there is nothing wrong with my old univolt. Its up for grabs as well. There are photos in my photo library if you want to see it.
