Default Where to put a Diode?

Another question as I install the "Little Kilowatt" generator and wire it into the switchbox for the charge controller. I want to put a diode in the wiring to keep the generator from motoring if for some reason it stalls. It is a 110vdc/450 watt unit. My question is, how to size the diode. The generator output is listed. The current coming back from the battery bank is 12v nominal. I would appreciate if someone could elaborate the hows and why's to do this correctly. Thanx!
