Nearing 20,000 miles since last change but its been raining forever! No I don't have an indoor garage!

My car runs great and shows I have 14 watts but when I have the heat running and am at a stop light it drops to almost 9 on the gauge.

It happened recently last week and happened twice this week and I'm really confused to why my car shakes when it turns on.
