Re: gm7127

depending on where you put the breaker you may be limiting the alternator to 30 amps max out put if the breaker is between the battery and the alternator and all/ most of your electronics are conected to the battery side of the breaker you have just limited the alternator to 30 amps if you put the load of lights ect on the alt side of the breaker then you havent limited your self if you have a winch then you will more than likely have alot of problems if it is hooked to the alt side it will blow the breaker because the alt cant put out enough amps by itself if you put it on the battery side the alt will jump to full output and kick the breaker i have a winch so i ran a heavy wire to the battery no fuse or breaker and put a breaker on all my wires coming off the battery except the starter and winch
