Jacob from Bentley writes

If I hook to my truck battery while the truck is running, will the output of the alternator burn up the Delavan 5850-201 Electric Pump?


Per the manufacturer it should not burn the pump.  An alternator puts out 12 Volts, battery is a 12 Volt battery, Delavan 5850-201 Electric Pump is a 12 Volt pump you will be fine. Be sure there is an in-line fuse for your pump at the battery. It should be a 30 amp fuse.
