Re: Star Cool drains house battery while driving
Also, when you're figuring alternator output, I believe that when an alternator gets hot, ie: in a diesel engine compartment, it's probably only putting out about half, or a little better, of what it's "rated" capacity is. We had this problem on a boat once. The alternator was running all the time full tilt and never filling up the battery bank. The batteries never filled up and let the alternator kick off. A 200 Amp alternator is probably a really good thing to have, esp. with Star-cool.
