something like this... it's not a permanent solution...

any idea how old the belt is? Tensioner and new belt as mentioned above. There is a belt resin they sell for squeaky belts. Might be good for a try to see if you can get more amps with more friction then judge if it's worth changing belts.

that is a neat assembly but the breakers could be included in the radian enclosure and a bridge rectifier would be required as well...

Four 12V battery for $100 each could easily be use for a total of $400 vs $3,000. I completely agree
