    They all put out a certain amount of charging capabilities the trick is to harness that. I know you will have to tap into that source and add a rectifier
    I'll see if I can find the info you need for this. I may have it in my files already but can't promise anything though.

    Chad look on the side of the motor some where close to the top and see if you can find a square box with a couple wires running up to the junction box where all the wires hook up. Should be wire colors of either yellow , red, or black or maybe both
