oooo I know. the boxhitch has an electircal connection. be sure this one isn't touching anything.

should be strong enough to power your headlights and recharge the battery. Defective alternator..like a boy tryin' to do a man's job.-

okay yeah. Bad battery, then-

You could do a load test, and power test on this battery to see if it's funky-
