Larger alternator

My alternator decided it does not want to turn anymore, so instead of replacing it with the standard 160 or 145 amp alt, i am thinking of upgrading to +200 amp alternator. has anyone done this to skoolie and are there any drawbacks to a larger alternator.

Yes i would be replacing the wires if needed.

Also can anyone make a recommendation to a good upgraded alt. it will be for a Thomas MVP ER 3126B cat motor.

There are any number of high output alternators available these days. Many were configured for use on EMS vehicle, fire trucks, ambulances, etc.

I found a 250 amp for my 4BT Cummins through National Quick Start Sales.
