Provided the glow plugs are off, you should be measuring at least 14 volts at the batteries when the engine is running. With my headlights and AC on, I get 14.6 volts at idle, but I have also upgraded my alternator.
Try checking the output voltage at the terminal on the back side of the alternator with one probe on the terminal and one on a good ground to get an idea of what your alternator output is; however, make sure that you wait long enough for the glow plugs to shut off, as they draw a lot of current.
