Double check and make sure this is the correct alternator for your model here.If this is the incorrect alternator this can cause this type of fault here.If this is the case the correct alternator usually needs installed.If you know this one will work in your model here let me know.

This is the common replacement part for Rvs and buses. You told me nothing and this better not cost me anything you sent me a bunch of double talk.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Hello, if the light is not going out you may have it on the wrong terminal. I'll post a diagram below for you on how it should be connected. I'm thinking you likely have it on the "sense" terminal. Let me know if I can help further.

Thank you very much for the diagram I also have that seem diagram my question is a motorhome apparently has a really turns the light on and off and also drives the tachometer I had not aware of the location it's not in any of the normal relay boxes And being able to identify the wire ends it does not give a color coding on the diagrams that I have for this coach

On this model they put the relay in line in the harness you'll need to contact Monaco for the schematic with location which they will provide for free. Here's the contact info.
