Me and a friend just bought a medium sized Thomas with a T444e engine. We were able to drive it back from West Virginia without turning it off for very long because the batteries were bad and wouldn't really hold a charge. A few times we turned it off and were able to start it right up. After we left it over night it wouldn't start up though.
We purchased new batteries and it started right up and we drove it for a bit no problem there. My question is does anyone know about how to tell if the alternator is bad so that I don't drain the batteries and have to spring for new ones again?
We were told we could take it out and get it tested, is this a difficult thing?
Any advice would be great.
