I had troubles with the stock alternator on 19444 and obtaining rebuilds from my supplier in Florida was getting worse so I took their advice and adapted the common Delco single wire alternator that is prevalent in most GM cars.  It requires only a single connection (the heavy brown wire)  to the battery and is commonly  replaceable at any parts store. It is also around 85 amps output so it should provide for any needs.  It mounted easily ( see photos in the Florida car gallery) and doesn't require an exiter curcuit, so no bulb.  I have noticed some unusual voltage drops after highway drives, but  overall has been reliable.  At $75 for a rebuilt unit  I have no complaints.
