The alt to battery is important, it's where all your power comes from and could have a lot to do with your voltage drops. It could also be your alt isn't big enough or is starting to go.

Did you clean every place you put a ground? Add the one from you alt + to your battery. Check and see what size alt you have it is prob, just a 100 amp and that will kill your chargeing system.. If you have a amp clamp that will do (DC AMP) see what the amps are pulling. but for right now add one more battery

x2....its very important to get that 3rd wire hooked up b/c thats what will keep you charging......and another batt in the rear may not hurt either
