    Troubleshooting Surging Voltage when Charging - Balmar & Mastervolt System

    Thanks - I will triple check the alt regulator wiring, and test connections on field and voltage sense wires. That could be the issue. BTW, I have already replaced the alt-regulator with a new one. Same issue with both.

    Carbon/foam pre-purchase survey: thermal imaging?

    For better or worse, we didn’t do any thermal. A very thorough standard survey was hopefully enough. It felt like it could be a crap shoot to really understand what we were learning, and was going to be 10% of purchase price. Time will tell if that was the right or wrong decision.
