SOURCE: Low voltage
Most generators use a flyball type governor within the engine to control rpm; also there is a voltage regulator that tries to maintain voltage at about 115v. The voltage regulator varies the voltage to the armature increasing /adjusting magnetic force. Use a meter with htz or freq setting to adjust engine governor to 60 cycles. When the generator is producing 60 cycles, the engine should be turning 3600 rpm, max power range. At 3600 rpm the voltage should be 115 to 120 volts. Loading the generator will cause governor to try to maintain 3600 rpm. Check engine manual for proper adjustment of gonvernor and linkage. The governor mech should last the life of the engine, however governor system does wear out. Expensive repair. enjoy

Something similar happened to my van, and it ended up being that I needed to replace a tie rod in one of my wheels. Hope this helps! I know this was posted awhile ago.

85 volts represents residual voltage. It is possible that your unit sat for an extended period and lost it's magnetism or the excitation system failed under load. check your manual for a procedure to "flash the field". If that is not successful, e-mail me and I'll tell you how to trouble shoot the failure.
