We need to know if your RV is built on a Ford, GM or Dodge chassis. I do know Ford mounted theirs on the firewall and it's about 2 1/2' by 3 1/2 " metal box with three to four wires plugged into it. Don't forget to check your wiring for corrosion, abrasion, and tightness..

Yes, need to know the brand of the chassis.

At least GM, 1970 will have a separate regulator, small square box with 4 wires as described above.

Best replacement is a wells vr715, a solid state regulator available at autozone.

Winnebago only used a Dodge or Ford chasssis in 1970. If you have a Dodge chassis:
The regulator is mounted on the plate mounted to the rear of the engine above the bell housing.
If you need more information please refer to the Description and Troubleshooting information under the Charging section of my website: http://dave78chieftain.zxq.net/
Ignore any electronic ignition references as Dodge did not implement that until 1973.

If you have the Ford chassis, I would have to dig deeper as I have never looked at that.
