This will put it in a different format and we should be able to then also attach it as a smaller file to the Bouncing Alternator thread. The beauty of also having it in the data base as a PDF lets folks view it and blow it up to see finer detail. This feature that is often lost in other formats.
Rob,

That file is now in the Database and can now be found under;

My 1118443 regulator only has three terminals. I guess I leave off the red wire?

Okay it would appear that my pulsing alternator problem may be solved. I've just taken my rig up island 100 miles and so far so good. My research and investigations determined that I had a 4 wire regulator and that there was a wire from the Battery terminal on the reg to the fifth stud right next to the fire wall. For orientation purposed the first stud is closest to the alternator and takes power directly off the alternator. There are four other insulated studs on the same panel moving from the alternator forward to the fire wall. With this info I called George Morris in Bleakley. I told him about the schematic with the Bosch relay and 15 Amp circuit breaker and he said I probably didn't need to go that entire route. His advice was to simply remove the wire from the fifth insulated stud (next to firewall) and secure to the first stud where the alternator connects directly. I did this and the pulsing (bouncing) has stopped. By the way the wire already had a re-settable breaker in line.

Rob
That is good news. Am I going to see you this trip? 100 miles puts you in Nanaimo?

You and Sue are always welcome here.

Pete

Hi Peter. I'm in Port Albernie visiting with my aunt and doing a few mods to the tv and associated electronic gumf up front. I've moved the flat screen over further to the drivers side and I'm in the process of turning the big hole (CRT TV hole) into a home for the vcr, wifi, sat receiver, nomad 2, etc etc. They are going to be on a slide out. Pictures to follow. I won't be able to visit this time Peter but will be up in July to camp at that park next to Saratoga Beach

Rob,

PLEASE don't have ANYTHING else go wrong with your coach! Everything that happens to you is happening to me....

When your genny went out, so did mine and I had to make 2 trips to Powertech to get things fixed.

Your pulsing regulator struck me 2 days ago.

Ron,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...for telling us about George at Bleakly guiding you through your pulsing regulator. Read that post last night at the Flying J 120 miles south of Bleakly. Called George and he said he could take me, so back 120 miles and he fixed us fine in about 1/2 hour. I needed the relay as I have the 3 wire regulator.

To all others following this thread:

George told me the 50DN 12V alternator is available from NAPA, and he said he just got one. He also said BB knew about the bouncing regulator problem and chose not to have a recall, but fix them when an owner complained. He further said that Delco engineers spent a great deal of time at BB to find a cause/fix for the problem. They gave up. George said he found the solution. And lastly, he told me that there is a fix for 3,4 or 5 wire regulators. The fix is basically the same. To provide clean B+ (hot line power) to the regulator.
