Leave acc there.  Disconnect the wire that comes from the regulator (the larger wire) from the solenoid.  Leave the acc wire on the solenoid.  Connect wire from regulator to center of iso.  Wire from one of the other connections of the isolator to the solenoid.  Same place you just removed the larger wire from.

The acc wire will not allow the accessories to draw current from your main battery.  Just connect it to the original connection point.

Rhetorical question - but just to confirm - this is a fixed rotor - ie, a dumping or stator system.... the voltage regulator dumps (or passes) the heavy current from the stator (and hence is heatsinked etc)??
(It obviously is going by the wiring diagrams. And many RVs like snowbikes, outboards & marines seem to use the same.)

yes that is correct and I just ran out to make sure but yes the diagram is how I've got it done. I don't understand why it won't charge without the acc power.

Connect the acc wire to where it was initially connected.  It will make no difference if it is a diode type isolator.  If it were a solenoid type isolator, then yes having the coil of the isolator connected to the acc terminal could leave you stranded.  It will make NO DIFFERENCE on a diode type isolator.
