Maybe the charging system is fine and the battery the guy had in it went bad? Take a reading on the battery before you use it then use it for a day then take a reading when you're done, in theory that would tell you if it's charging or not. I haven't been up close to a 300 series in a while, but is there a gage on the dash for the battery/charging? It could be that the gage stopped working and the guy thought he had a charging problem. You could always take the alternator into Auto Zone, O'Riley's, or your dealer and have them test it.
As for attachments try Craig's list, ebay, or your dealer.
It's not the equipment that makes a professional, it's the operator.
