Why doesn't it charge at idle?


It depends if the system is RVC/regulated voltage control. If so, there are about six modes of operation. One is, "fuel economy mode". In that mode, the targeted generator out-put is 13 volts and battery state of charge is greater than 80%. There are two other conditions.
Is there a battery discharge problem? Does the instrument cluster give charging system message or warning lamp?
Any charging system trouble codes? My info on your charging system is limited.

1973 ford f250 trailer special. new alt. wont


That would be my first guess,they are not very exspensive,if this still does not help,run a large wire on the back of the alternator with the old one still connected,to the positive battery post.This will increase the voltage to the battery also.Put it on the large batt,connector on the alternator,and run it to the battery post+

Not charging


First tell me why you don't think it's charging.
Because of the voltage reading you are getting at the battery terminals? The range you want is between 13.6v to 14.2v. The higher the voltage the lower the amps. and true the other way, the lower the voltage the higher the amps. If you get a reading of 13.6v or lower, the alt is nearing or at max output. An alt can only run at maximum for around fifteen minutes and it will start slinging solder from overheating. It's a good indication the battery is either totally dead or junk. Charging above 14.2 the alternater is running wide open and is only putting out high volts which will cause the battery to boil , in turn destroying it. This is a bad alternater. All alternaters have integrated voltage regulater with the exception of ver few of the earlier ones. You cannot test an alternater by removing a battery cable to see if the engine keeps running without taking great risk of damaging the alt, regulator. So tell me why you feel it isn't charging. Remember an alt is not made to charge dead batteries. Their sole function is to maintain the battery charge. Without a battery, the alt won't last 10 seconds.
Hope to hear from you and good luck.

Charging system error


Have the fusable link checked. It's a short insulated wire integral with the main wire harness. ( if it is equipped with one).
