1. Disconnect battery negative terminal.
The DGV-5000 Series have two terminals marked “B” and “L”.
The “B” terminal is regulated power and can be connected directly to your battery or headlight switch (use 14 gage wire). If a battery is used we recommend a 20-amp fuse or breaker between battery and generator. The “L” terminal is for your generator light. If you do not have a generator light do not use this terminal. Connect the wire from your generator light that used to connect to the “A” terminal. If wiring from scratch you must have a two wire insulated socket. One wire gets power from the battery after the ignition switch. Usually the same place the oil light gets its power. The other wire connects to the “L” terminal on the generator. The light grounds through this terminal.
THIS GENERATOR IS POLARIZED AT THE FACTORY. NO FURTHER POLARIZATION IS NEEDED!
* On FL Models the terminals are very close to the engine case. This should be sufficient clearance.
