Question 1:
We are going to convert this bus into a limo bus which will consume lots of electricity power (Interior).
For example:
A 5000 watt (42amp) power inverter (12 to 110 volt) and maybe an extra 2000watt (17amp) inverter will be installed to supply tv screens / a variety of lighting / décor and other 110 volt equipment.
LED 12 volt lightning and existing ones…
A/C front and back
Bus will be used a lot at night…
In other words, the batteries will have to give a lot.

What alternator do you recommend for us? And a rectifier?

Question 2:

As being the alternator experts, what do you think the problem is of the following.
As of the day we have the bus, all light bulbs in the vehicle flash when you rev the engine.
Some say it’s the “generator” type of alternator that the bus has. Some say it is a ground wire. We cannot find a loose ground wire. Some say, just replace the alternator. But what do you think makes the lights go flashing when you give rpm to the engine?

Any suggestions to solutions are welcome.

Is it a cube bus or a passenger bus? Actually, according to my application guide, you're vehicle either has dual 110 amp 6G Series alternators, a single 130 amp 3G series alternator, or a single 215 amp Mitsubishi alternator in the ambulance prep. Could you let me know which alternator it looks like you have? There are many upgrade paths, but you will definitely need a Quicktifier Remote Rectifier and a QuikCool System to help keep your charging system cool when stopped and idling, when the alternator has no airflow. Let me know some more specifics on your charging system and we can go from there. You can find the Quicktifier and Quikcool at www.alternatorparts.com

also, the flashing lights may be a number of things, but your charging system is more than likely not a generator, and the voltage regulator may be to blame. But, it could also be bad brushes getting hung up in the brush holder.
