Good stuff guys, I think I may redo the set up and run both deep cycles in parallel for the “system” and get a Optima Yellow top just for starting.

I think there are 4 wires total coming out of the alternator and they are all tight….. Tuesday night I’ll be back at the house and get out the fluke meter

I know, right? That's what happens when I'm stuck on an hours long conference call - I start typing and before I realize it I've written way more than necessary.

It's a gift.

Got her all fixed up last night!! Alternator was pumping out 17+ looking for something to charge…..

The eyelet on the main post of the alternator was frayed and had a horrible connection. Chopped it off, crimped and soldered on a new, good to go. 20 cent fix, have to love that!

Glad you found the problem. I'd check it after the next few time you use the boat to make sure it's not re-occuring due to over rated current draw form another issue.

Just the way I am fix and verify:-)

I do think the whole battery / charging issue has been solved and maybe even beaten.. One thing that was said at one point though was that the lights dim for the heavy bass. Now, being sure to have good voltage and therefore charging is important here to ensure that you have the power that you need, what about the wires themselves? Due to your Super Power Sound System you may want to check on the wire size supplying said "SPSS", if they are on the small side it will cause a voltage drop across the system when they pull hard (big bass). Have fun and ROCK ON

Both batteries have been topped off and charged fully. I’m also going to add a 4 microfarad stiffening cap, which solved the dimming problem in my truck
