double check charging

Hi, are you a hundred percent sure it does not charge below 1500 rpm, do you have an electric voltmeter (i guess you do) on cold engine/start fire up the vehicle, dont rev it, let it tick over a minute, place the voltmeter on the pos and neg of the battery terminal connectors and see what the reading is, should say about 13 volts for arguments sake, then apply throttle gently to see what happens to the reading.

Full of ideas but no time to do them!!
