Hey how are you

the 13.2 is low when running ,we need to see the 14 plus volts when runningif the altenator is charging

does the 13.2 volts when running holds at 13.2 if you trun all loads on like radio ,ac flasher headlight or keep droping down ?

if the abttery is not charging and or altenator not charging it it will cause all the ysystem to failrt like air ride ,teft etc,,, so when we fix the chatrging issue i m siure all that will go away

Please let me know

Thank You
