Yes but who knows how long. It hasnt done the RPM thing before and didnt do it before i lost radio and gauges on the interstate. I don't want to risk getting back on the road and having to have it towed again.

Just put a new alternator in it at Oriellys and it doesn't hesitate anymore at 2krpm. However...now I have a solid battery light on. Rev the truck up, and the light goes off. Rev it up again, the light comes back on. So we disconnected one battery while it was running...no light, truck ran normal. Did the same thing on the other side...same result. So now i'm back at the hotel...not sure where to go from here. Gonna start lookin at wiring diagrams I guess...
