white smoke/haze at idle

my truck is an 06 6.0 its studded and deleted with all the updates. about 2 mounths ago i noticed a white smokey haze at idle that would go away when i accelatered or if i just kept the rpms up. it wouldent happen all the time. the time when it would smoke the most is when the a/c was on high. when this would happen the truck would run fine, it wouldent miss or anything, you would neaver tell it was smoking unless u saw it. at first i thought it was the turbo seals so i pulled the down pipe to check for oily goo and found nothing. i hooked up my autoenginuity scanner to do a ballance test and found nothing.i also checked my ficm and it was steady at 52v (i have the high voltage one). i then by chance i looked over at my charging volatage and at idle with nothing on it would read 13.1v and then when i turned my a/c on it would dip down to 12.6 and stay their. could it really be that simple that the answer to my problems is just a bad alternator??? o and also the truck hasent lost a drop of oil or coolent.

As I Ride through the valleys of SUVs and riceburners, I shall fear no evil, for torque and positraction are mine. Mine eight rods, eight pistons and diesel power, they comfort me. For therein lies mine power, and glory, and salvation, forever.
