"When the Nissan outboard is in neutral you are reading 14.4 volts. When you are in gear, and under power, is your engine’s revolutions faster than they were when the motor was in neutral? If so your alternator output should be at least 14.4 volts."

he stated that the output of 14.4 volts was at near full throttle in neutral, and if his engine is bogging in gear that can account for decreased output. i understand that these small outboard chargers are really quite marginal.
