Occasionally when charging via the alternator my charging voltages can get between 14-15v. This is due to a long run to the batteries from the Alternator, causing the sensed voltages to be lower than at the batteries (im assuming).

My concern is for my electronics, so I was thinking of adding some kind of voltage regulator to ensure Im providing clean power to my electronics, which may be more sensitive to voltage spikes.

Has anyone installed anything like this on their house circuits?

Agree that you don't need to worry about your electronics. However, if your alternator wiring is undersized then I'd fix that.
