Re: Need some help on a trunk battery
The MAD diagram shows a single wire alternator. There are a lot of reasons not to use a single wire. Personally I prefer the CS style and have a CS-130 in my car.
If you also decide to use a CS style, consider adding another wire from the remote sensing terminal to your terminal block where all the vehicle power wires connect to. This will do two things. First it well help maintain a nice steady regulated voltage for your vehicle power source. Second, it will make certain your battery gets adequate voltage to keep it fully charged.
