Spring's warmer temperatures may seem like a real treat for both you and your truck's starting-charging system. But while these more pleasant conditions can help amplify battery capacity - making it easier for your engine to turn over - they also increase the rate at which your batteries deteriorate.
That's because warmer temperatures encourage corrosion and lead sulfate to build up on the grids and electrodes. This, in turn, can interfere with charging, eventually leading to battery failure.
But that's not the only power threat you face. Electronic parasites can also drain a battery to discharge. Whether it's a TV, microwave or laptop charger left running too long, or a telematics system pulling 24/7 from an already weakened battery bank, parasitic loads deplete reserve capacity, putting you at real risk for unexpected battery failure and costly downtime.
Follow this simple five-step plan to help prevent excessive discharge, and keep your batteries running strong all spring and summer:
Regular inspections and testing are critical for maximum battery longevity.
