    Need a bit more advice on wiring regs in the garage, Ring main will mostly be hidden behind inner wall skin, but where it is showing above the walls (along eaves tops) and also the lighting wiring in the roof, does it have to be in trunking or is it ok to just clip it to the joists?

    Can someone please confirm the correct wiring for an alternator? My "understanding" is that the large terminal gets a permanent 12v feed. The smaller one gets an ignition feed, which goes through a dash warning light, which will go out when the alternator spins? Thanks guys Mark
