Having problems with your 1997 Dodge Dakota ?

Headlights dim, voltage meter and other gages 'drop' when idling/not accelerating, red "GEN" light on dash comes on, everything powers back up when accelerating. What is "GEN" light (generator aka alternator, I don't have the owner's manual and this is my first Dodge diesel. I replaced both batteries recently. Am assuming alternator or voltage regulator. Thanks
