My genset doesn't have its own alternator and I don't see a way to add one. It's just a little Next Generation 3.5k. Sorry about the crude drawing. I just bodged it together quickly in MSWord. I'll get it up to your standards for you when I have a few spare hours (just kidding). The only fuse in the rig currently ( <- PUN ) is on the windlass.

Don't know anything about the NextGen 3.5kw and apparent lack of an alternator.

Some years ago, certain ONAN models had a 12VDC winding in the AC generator housing that kept the gen start battery charged.* No obvious alternator/generator.* Anything in your manual?

About 10 years ago, the alternator for my 5kw NorthernLights stopped working.* Field solution was to direct wire a 6 amp AC powered charger.
