Default Another ground problem?

Today I discovered that when I turn on the spotlights the generator temperature guage jumps to 160 degrees (generator not running or hot).

Maybe a bad ground on the spotlight? That is the first thing that came to mind.

Gardner,
Sounds more like a bad ground or a short in the control panel. If yours is like mine, the spot controls are on the same panel as the generator gauges and controls. At least it's easy to get to!
