I was on the trail last night, and after a section of winching my battery light came on and my tach stopped working. I tried to exit the trail, but my vehicle died before I would make it out. I removed my battery (pretty much brand new optima yellow top) and left it on a friends charger overnight. This morning when I dropped it back into the truck it fired right up, but the battery light was still illuminated.

All connections are tight, and I have had no electrical issues at all before this occurrence. As for accessories, all I am currently running are a couple of led lights and a winch. The drive home left my battery dead enough that it will not start without a jump. I live in a pretty remote area, and driving to a parts store for a Alt/batt test isn't really an option, otherwise I wouldn't be making a seemingly redundant thread.

just got a new alternator installed, seems to have remedied everything i was experiencing. I opted to install a 120A over the standard 100A. should be good while running accessories.
