Searching for isolator relay delay

We have a 2004 Gulfstream Sunvoyager. I've looked in all electric compartments for the IRD (isolator relay delay) with no success. If anyone has suggestions, it sure would be appreciated!

It will be under the hood, most likely on the drivers side. I have attached a photo to help you find it.

Good Luck...

Thanks; I've looked under the hood, and can't find anything. If you have any more specifics, I would really appreciate it.

In the engine compartment or in the electrical compartment, or even near the batteries, look for a box. This may house the aux switch relay, isolator relay disconnect relay and bird relay. Look for a big box with what looks like battery cables going into it.

Does it have one?

My older Gulfstream Class C, don't. Just a solenoid under the hood, run by the key.

Pretty sure the op has one, just a matter of finding it. Parts catalog shows one for that model.

There is no delay in mine.I suppose I've got the only one. Just don't think so.

Do you feel that there is some reason to have one?

If it's to protect the alternator from overload, many older Class Cs , like mine, only have 1 house battery. Its the same size as the start battery. Most alternatives can handle that.

My 92 Dutchman Class C had one under the hood. It's there so alternator can charge house battery but you can't run the engine battery down using house electric. I'll bet you have one too.

I have a solenoid to connect the start battery to the house battery, when the engine is running, to charge the house battery.

It is under the hood. When the engine is off, it disconnects. When I turn on the engine it connects. There is NO time delay relay.

Diode based, battery isolators, used by some manufacturers, do NOT have a time delay relay. The alt. output feeds the isolator and the isolator feeds both house and start batteries.

Isolator and BIRD together allow the battery sets to be linked together to allow, charging from alternator, genset, shore power, and aux start. The isolator will separate the sets to prevent house draw from killing chassis batt.
