I will give that go.
Should the alternator not be putting out voltage even without a battery hooked up to it? Or does it need to sense thatv1 is connected.

Many if not all alternators need battery voltage to start outputting.

Battery voltage at the B+ terminal or on the field wire. I have 12v on the field wire.

Ran jumper cable from the B+ on the alternator direct to a coach battery. Could hear the alternator kick in and shows 13.9 v. So looks like I have some more wire chasing to do.
Did the jumper to the starter post. No voltage from alternator.
