Default 2nd alternator?

While replacing my compressor coolant lines I found a small alternator just under my A/C compressor. What is it for?

Kip, some PT's came with 2 alternators. Mine only had one. And as I added more "goodies" that needed more juice, the single stock unit wasn't up to the task. I tracked down a a 320 amp Leece Neville unit on e bay and installed that. I wish I had a 2 alternator set up like you.

I met a guy, ( forget his name) at the Birds Nest one time that found he had 2 alternators. The belt was off the one under the air cond compressor. He had no idea how long the belt had been off, but he had no charging problems with just the one. His coach was pretty much stock with little or no electronic upgrades.

Have you tested the second one to see if it's working.

No, I just found it this morning. It's small, like a car alternator. It uses the same belt as the A/C compressor. I'm not even sure if it turns without the A/C on and I know the A/c doesn't work.

the AC belt only turns if the engine is running.
The AC being turned on will not affect the belt.
