    I dont know about that. That is less than 1/2 volt about the operating system. Dont know about a 1200 but almost anything with an engine charging system is usually 1-2 volts above the systems voltage so it can charge the battery. The gpr1300 and xlt
    is high 13's low 14 as well.

    Check it when it is not running vs running. The amount of charge already in the battery makes a difference. +1 on it should be 1 to 2 volts about battery charge level. If it is less voltage running than switched off, u know you have a problem.

    A fresh-charged battery should be at 12.6 v... so if you're really only at 12.32, then you are NOT charging the battery, but maintaining it in a slightly 'discharged' state. Something is not right. The FIRST thing I'd suspect is the meter... check your cars 12v battery after it's sat for a while. The car should be 12.6 when it's sat for a while and 13.2-14.6 when it is running. If you're reading less than that, I'd not be trusting that meter much. If you get those readings (13.2-14.6 while running), THEN I'd suspect the charging circuit on the ski.
