17 volts is not normal. The voltage should be somewhere in between 14 - 15 volts.

Bogie is the man, and I should learn not to mess with him

What brand of R/R did they install and does it have any warranty? Did they check the R/R plug as it's known to melt itself ?
They do get very warm and/ or hot as they are semi conductors and the "fins" help them to cool.
