That's a great idea. Not much juice generated at idle.

I think you are on the right track thinking your primary alternator has quit functioning correctly. Definitely not designed to have the light on with an alternator code. Easy to pop it off and run it down to be tested.

Yes, but if he wants to turn his truck into a generator go all in. That mod is fairly cheap and would add flexibility.
