My alternator went belly up on my last RV trip. $440.00 later I got it back with a re manufactured one obtained at Autozone. On the drive back,...Fla to Vt. I noticed the battery light coming on once in a while, just a quick flash. Never failed to start, but I'm wondering if this could be a bad alternator , or dirty battery / electrical connections? Thoughts?

I would check to make sure the main power cable to the alternator is tight, then clean the battery posts and cable terminals (this should have been done during the alternator install). Also remove the ground cable from the radiator support and wire brush it clean along with the bolt and the mount area. If it still happens I'd take it to Autozone and have them do a check.

The failed alternator may have placed some strain on the battery. Have the battery tested, in addition to what was mentioned above.
