I'm attempting to locate the voltage regulator on a 2002 Coachmen Cross Country Elite. Anyone know where it can be found?

Most later model voltage regulators are built into the alternator.

Actually, on most later model engines, the voltage regulation function is handled by the engine control computer. Whether a 2002 model did it that way, I couldn't say. Older model GM products did indeed use a regulator that was built in to the alternator, while Ford and Dodge vehicles still had separate voltage regulators. You could buy the GM regulator as a separate part if you were willing to disassemble the alternator to replace it. (I used to sell auto parts.)

Bottom line to the original poster, you may not have a separate voltage regulator.

Notify moderator function not working (again).

A duplicate of this post in Class A section. Probably better there.

More specifically, it is a Cummins diesel. Does that change the answers? Thanks guys, for the responses.
