Recalled Stator

Fellow stromers, my question is, has the updated stator 17G13, been a significant improvement over the past 17G12 thus far? Thanks

No "reported" failures from the latest rendition, my voltage is higher and more stable than with the previous.

Well I've been having some voltage dropout issues when it gets really Texas hot. Pretty sure it's a heat issue since it goes away when cooler temps prevail.
Of course teh dealer is being obtuse and they ran it in the air conditioned shop for a half hour and couldn't see a problem - I asked him - "what part of hot outside are you having a problem with?"
I have the incident on record so if it craps out I have recourse I hope.
It's not the regulator as I swapped out for a SH775 and still had the issue.
