There isn't any equipment that needs inventing or hasn't already been invented when it comes to bus dc systems.
I'm a second year inside wireman, with three years experience total. I was referring to the engine and charging system as basically being a generator, not just the alternator.
There isn't anything that needs inventing, that we know of. ;) But hey, necessity is the mother of invention. If someone can come up with a product or device or way to make things better or easier, I'm all for it.
