iv'e tried doing a search but can't find the answer. on a 2019 voyager why are there 2 regulator/rectifiers. seen it this way in a parts phish.
just seemed strange to me that it would need 2.

Looking at the electrical diagram, I'd say that each one rectifies half of the A/C sine waves for the 3 phases put out by the stator. One R/R for the positive part of the wave and one for the negative.

There are 2 stators integrated into one unit, hence the need for 2 reg/rect's.
This is done to increase the total output of the alternator.
Actually, the Voyager (at least the 2010) only has 1.
