Don't trust the gauge, get a voltmeter and see what it is actually putting out, the fact that the RPM's climb when a load is put on it makes me think it is not outputting what it should be and the computer is trying to compensate by raising the engine speed. HTH

Go to one of your local parts houses and ask them to run a load test on your charging system. They should be able to tell you EXACTLY what the problem is.
