    I have a 2005 4500 with a 9.5V Plow on it. I have been noticing that the battery gadget goes down very low when moving plow. I do not now if i need to uprgrade my alternator.
    Has anyone had problems like this?

    Had same problem until I put in dual battery setup. If you have duals already a new alternator might help. Also check out the sticky in the chevy section. There is info about upgrading the alternator wire. Try that it helped my 6.0l.
