YOu are correct. If you are charging above 14.7V turn something on such as lights to put a load on the system. if it is still above 14.7V, rectifier is faulty. Let me know if I can be of more assistance. Please remember to RATE me as I strive to be the best and your rating helps me to achieve this . Thank you, ***** ***** hope you have a good day
