Need Battery Suggestions!
When my truck isn't plugged in and it's real cold out 0-20* F, especially when it sits all day or overnight, the batteries don't seem to have enough juice to turn the motor over. Defintitely related is the fact that my gauges are hooked up to the 12V outlet in the dash and I need to relocate that wire. But, when it's above 30 degrees I have no problem at all starting the truck if it sits for a while. Does having my gauges hooked up to the 12V outlet draw that much power when the truck is off and would it effect cold starting that much if the block isn't plugged in.
More than likely, my batteries need to be replaced though. I was hoping to get a few suggestions for batteries for my 98 12v. I'd like something that will have the cold cranking power for temps to 0*.
