Feel free to forward this reply to the list, I didn't want to do
that myself without your permission.

Don't feel like the Lone Ranger ;-).  A bunch of us have similar
problems, and the common factor always seems to be that we're not
running the original alternator.  If the dealership is putting in
alternators that are just as good as the original one, I don't
know what to tell you.

I don't really know that much about the charging systems...besides
the alternator, battery, voltage regulator, and excess draw from
something left on or a short, is there anything else this can be?
