I think you should crank the voltage up to the rated 13.9V.
I'm not familar with the 262G supply but I assume it's like most
others in that is has a voltage adjustment pot inside. Set it for
13.9 volts with only the receiver for a load. A drop of .75v is
not too bad at full power but the overall voltage is too low.
