'80 CJ7 Amc 304 alternator problem.

Ive had my charging system only putting out 10-11 volts for a year now everynow and then jumping to 13.5 where I want it. I have spent hours tracing wire after wire thinking that was it after I had a new alternator put on. Last week a belt started to squeal, so to day I set to see which one and noticed my alternator belt was VERY loose. I could turn the pully with no effort at all by hand. Tightened it and BOOM no squeal and 14 volts. Now I need to kick the dumbasses butt who put that on last.....
