Has anyone suggested poor electrical contacts? Especially with grounds. As the RPM drops the Alternator reduces its output. Normally not an issue, but any corrosion or oil caked contacts will.
Also, voltage fluctuations could lead to premature Alternator failure.
Bad ground can be checked for by running additional grounding wire between battery, frame, engine block and alternator frame.
