Default 2010 Switchback 800 electrical

I’ve been reading the threads but can only find similar issues. Was away on a Quebec trip when my gauge console died, headlight and taillight dimmed out. I’m assuming I lost hand warmers as well. No loss in engine performance. Above items would come back on, then off, etc... when on the voltage meter would range from high draining down to zero with a “blinking battery light” to maintaining at 2 bars. It happened multiple days but sled never died. Appeared to get better when warmed up, had no problems putting 300 miles on with the issue.
From reading I’m leaning towards: bad ground, chassis relay, scuffed wire or possibly VR....any thoughts?

I would suspect VR is flaky.
