    [QUOTE=docb;478570]They called me today and said it was the alternator. Not sure why they couldn't figure that out here. I'm just glad it's going to be fixed.[/QUOTE

    That's how it goes sometimes......

    Do you have a battery selector switch that is between the batteries and the motor?

    Looks like the problem turned out to be a wire going to the alternator had a small amount of insulation burned off of it causing an intermittent ground. The alternator was most likely bad also and is what caused this. Anyways, sounds like it's good to go. Something to check if anyone ever has the same problem.
