    For those that have been chasing an electrical overdraw of voltage when you turn on all your accessories and drop below 12v. Try to replace the Ignition switch on the bottom of your steering column. I have been chasing this gremlin for over 2 years now and replaced the whole wire harness with a painless kit, new 130 amp alternator, new batteries and cables, new accessory switches, on, and on! The only switch I neglected was the switch for the Ignition! It was working as far as I knew, It started the rig, the rig ran, accessories worked. I changed that today and walla! My voltage is very strong, no loss of significant voltage when all accessories are on! Just a reminder of always check out the things that are still functioning for weakness!
