#6451: Jeep afterthought

For quite some time it's been below that--still charging, but a bit low. 12v is the nominal voltage; a properly-functioning 12v automotive electrical system should runs around 14v when everything's working and the engine is running.

And the whir/whine my alternator was making has decreased considerably. So, yeah--bad ground, all right.
