A littel more info

A little more info would help. Most alts will not put out their rated output when hot or warm. How big is your battery bank? What are you using for a voltage regulator? Do you have temperature sensors for battery & alternator? How many amps is it putting out? Do you know that it is actually putting out max amps for the specified period or are you guessing at that?
