I believe the alternator on the 1400 is the same one the Griso and Norge uses, they are fairly high output compared to the V7, it should have lots of power.
I assume you are reading the Voltage from the dash, it might be worthwhile to try a Voltmeter direct across the battery in case there's some loss in the wiring to the ECU (I think that's what is measuring it)
What I meant was if you turn the motor off the heating load should be disconnected, I don't know how many times I ran the V7 battery flat when I had my heated gear wired direct, I would forget to turn it off so it's now powered down when the engine stops.
My Vest is 70 Watts, the controller turns it on and off like the simerstat on an electric range.
I doubt your drive belt is slipping but it wouldn't hurt to check the tension.
