I thought I had some kind of short or other battery drain that depleted my battery after only a handful of starts, so I utilized the battery disconnect after each and every drive. My battery nonetheless required a recharge (~50%) after maybe a dozen starts so I am concluding that my generator is not recharging the battery as it should. This is a newer battery that gets a slow trickle charge and works fine afterwards. Can you offer any other explanation that I should look into? Is there any easy test other than full replacement of the generator to validate my theory? If I need to replace, should I convert to an alternator (reliability being the priority)?
