2017 Triton Alternator?
« on: July 13, 2017, 08:10:13 PM »
Hi,

Just got a new 2017 Triton diesel work ute. What type of alternator would be fitted? a constant voltage or a variable voltage?


Thanks

Variable voltage alternator, but not ECU controlled...

So, it's unlikely to drop much below 13v, unlike the Ranger/BT50 that will switch off down to 0v as commanded by the ECU

I used to be in the battery industry, and stay in touch with a bunch of mates who still are.

Give Tim at Traxide a call if you're looking at going down the dual battery path, he'll know for sure.

I've got a couple of mates with new Triton's running Tim's isolators with no issues
