Wow! Makes me wonder how we ever survived back in the old days with a 60 amp alternator and a single battery. :o

Survived? Not well. I stalled my engine so many times back in the day I lost track, trashed batteries, trashed the cheap winch motors of the time, spent endless extra time winching waiting to build back juice..........And my personal favorite I had to hike out with a dead battery to recharge while tied to a tree on the side of a mountain.............Oh my, the good old days.....

I was just gonna say... but FordyceCreekTrail beat me to it. I've had old cars with small alternators and batteries. And yeah, you'd get stranded.
