Re: What's your volt meter read under full load
I would suspect since the major current load is the front, ie, headlamps, fans, and battery, the red wire running about the engine compartment is probably still OE gauge #10 AWG.
As suggested by Joe, you should swap out the #10 AWG for #8, or better #6 AWG, from alt BATT stud to horn relay buss bar, from buss bar to junction block, and j/block to battery post as I would guess the heavy power accessories get their power from these two points.
The power demanded is controlled by the weakest link, the wire gauge, bigger gauge wire, more power flows.
The symptom Steps is describing is a high resistance connection; power going through a dirty joint, heat is given off. The hotter the joint, the higher the dissipation of power - high power in, low power out, joint is hot.
