Default 04 voltage low under load?

my wife noticed when leaving work that when she changed the stereo stations the lights on the stereo dimmed. when she got home I hooked a dvom to the battery with a no load voltage test it was at 14.4 but with the headlights heater radio and defroster on it went down to 12.7-12.8.
went out a few minutes later to check it again and with full load applied it was at 13.8. what is going on?
the battery is only 5 months old. isn't 12.8 to low?
thanks everyone!

Change out your ELD (Electrical Load Detector) if it bothers you. Other than that, just roll with it.
