You always could run some jumper cables from the toy to the tow rig had to do that one time

Any way to lock the fuel cut off open on the 5.9? Is that version reliant on the computer to run?

It's all better (knock on wood) now with the new alternator. It was a very intermittent problem and hard to diagnose since the voltage regulator is part of the pcm not part of the alternator....i couldn't tell if the computer was telling it not to charge or if it simply couldn't charge.....finally found a test procedure but i had to perform it while it was acting up which involved driving around till it acted up then pulling over and diagnosing it on the side of the road....at that point everything pointed to the alternator so i changed it....good news is if it does it again and its the pcm i can just bypass that and install a universal external voltage regulator and be off and running.
