Alternator Light stays on but alternator charges

I was returning from Washington State going back to Texas. Right out of Missoula, MT my alternator light came on and my voltage indicator began to decrease indicating that my 200Amp Leece Nevelle alternator had failed. I went to North Plains Cummins shop in Missoula and they verified that the alternator had failed. The pulled the unit and had it rebuilt and re-installed. My volt meter indicated and output of 14.5 volts~ but the alternator light remained on. Being late on Friday afternoon the techs closed up the unit and indicated that they could not work on it until Monday morning.
My coach is a 1997 Holiday Rambler Imperial on a Spartan Mountain Master chasis. I elected to drive the unit with the alternator light on. The system is indeed charging but I still have the indicator light problem. It appears to me that the tech's did not hook up the indicator lead or did hook it up incorrectly.
My question is: Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the alternator terminals defining the functions for each so I can check the wiring to the indicator light.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Call Spartan - have your VIN# handy. They have chassis wiring diagrams they can email you pretty quickly. I needed one and got it within 20 mins of calling.
