Can you elaborate on "toast"??* I assume you mean the regulator has power and ground applied, but isn't putting out any field voltage - correct??* Or can you see something fried or burnt or ??
I am not sure, as I am not*profecient with electrical components. All I know is that with the engine off and the charging system. A Truecharge 20+ smart charger, hooked to shore power the Regulator was hot to the touch and had melted the surface area on the top of the regulator. One of the lights was on on the regulator. I disconnected the Regulator and ordered a new one from Balmar. Of course the harness would not work so I had to order a new harness also.
*Kieth I do have a zap stop installed.
I am not sure how to check the alternator to be sure it is still working.
*I have a linc 20 that shows a charge when the engine is running. Other than that. I am lost.
