Alternator problem?

I use heated jacket and pants and heated hand grips. When everything is on full power, It goes down to 13.8V from 14.1V @2Krpm and over. At idle it is a different story. And if I turn on the long beam at the same time, it goes down to 13.3V if I recollect correctly. Are you talking about voltage drop when you are at idle or it happens when you are moving? If it happens when you are moving you should get your charging system checked. If you are close to 40K miles you are at risk of a burnt alternator. :(
