    An isolator takes the human "Oh **** I forgot" factor out of the equation. If you have ever been stuck out in the middle of nowhere in a motor home or camper because you left the switch in the wrong position you will become a believer in isolators!

    Thank you all for your help. I just got my Sure Power 240a isolator today, model number 24023a. My alternator is a KW1, so I don't think it's a CS type. Therefore, I am going to wire it up just like you all said, the SIMPLE WAY! K.I.S.S.

    AAAAARGGGHHHHHH!

    I found a spot for the isolator. Put it in. Made all new wires, and they looked professional, in my humble opinion.

    Hooked it all up, turned on the truck, and SERVICE ENGINE CHARGING SYSTEM comes on. I go back out, verify all the wires, SERVICE ENGINE CHARGING SYSTEM still on and now I notice that my volt-meter is reading 0.

    Go to Sure Power on line. No real tech documents online. Call the corporate number, get hooked up with an engineer. He has me pull the small plug on top of the alternator to see how many pins. I do. I have two. That means it's a Bosch alternator, not compatible with ANY battery isolator!!!!

    But, it IS compatible with a battery SEPARATOR!

    So, now I have to order a SEPARATOR and sell my isolator.

    Anyone want a nice 240a battery isolator, never used??

    Ouch that sucks! I do recall mentioning the Perko switcher - just a manual version of a seperator.

    Why yes, yes you did!!

    I'm still looking at them online, I think I'll go with the Sure Power 1315-200.
