Well bigger is better, but make sure that later model VR is used that 
has 14.5 V charge limit (although on the box and on the unit there is 
always 14V printed, so Bosch catalogue has to be consulted). After 
changing VR, test it with everything on, and see if voltage continues to 
drop, or does it hold the voltage at same level. If not, you have to 
find safe level of load, keep your eye on the voltmeter, or upgrade. Not 
sure about 120 A, but shouldn't be to far of for an adaptation to the 2B 
bracket. BTW, everything relayed there?
