Electrical problem 93 Bounder dp

When I turn on my a/c or turn signals the battery voltage and engine temp gauges dip way down? It seems like anything electrical will effect them but the turn signals are the worse. My fuel gauge wont read correctly ether. I'm thinking I have a ground problem somewhere but thought I might save some time if any of our friends here have had a similar issue.

Bet you have a loose ground wire going to the instrument cluster. Had that happen to me with a minivan. New ground wire and things stopped moving around with the turn signals LOL Good luck!

Thom ended up adding a ground from the alternator to the frame and one from the batteries to the frame and well a few other grounds in the dash area too. Thom also checked over and either cleaned or replaced most grounds in the coach that we could find while tracking a problem with the volts going down when the lights were turned on. They seem to have fixed it so far for us.
