I'm getting intermediate reading of 10.5 V on "bridge" circiut. It Runs VHF radio, 1040SX gps & radar. I have 12.2 @ control panel switch w/ engines off and 99% SOC on house system. Where could my two volts go?

That 12.2 reading is very low....99% SOC should be 12.6 or better at the batteries. Clean all the grounds and positive connections on the bridge feed.

Also, is the radar a recent install or was it there before this symptom started? Wondering whether the original main supply wire to the bridge is of sufficient size for all the loads that might have been added since factory....common oversight.
