As BrianW said is good time to put an upgrade on her wish list.
Thanks for the tip in the breaker switch. Installed the new blue sea piece and my heart sunk when I still failed to get a charge at idle. Was able to push in the little button and fired the van back up and ... It works! 14.5v reading at the inverter. Thanks for the help.
