Post your alternator output on your 6.0!
I just got home from Cali today, after 33 days away. Apparently I left my GPS on so I arrived back to a dead truck. After jumping it, I utilized the voltmeter function on my Tekonsha P3 to find my output voltage was roughly 11.5 volts, obviously not good! So I hauled @$$ home (110 miles) to go to the dealer and pick up a new alternator. As I was traveling (80+ MPH) I was getting roughly 12.6v out of the truck, and toward the end of the trip I was getting roughly 13.2v. Picked up a new alternator at the dealer, installed it, and on my trip to the girl's house I was getting between 13.6-13.8v underway with the lights on, and at idle it dropped down to 13.4v. Batteries are less than a year old (Diehard Platinums) and the connections all seamed corrosion free. Any ideas? It's a single alternator setup by the way.
