Had to replace the battery. Allthough it was still the first one, it only lasted about 5 years. I guess features like power sidesteps, starting with lights on and stuff like that doesnt help to increase the lasting age of a battery.
Well, if the new one works for another 5 years I wont complain.

Finally repaired the sail panel light out on the driver's side so I could make a video of the Recon Xtreme LOF bar, only to discover one of my 4-in-1 diodes out on the drivers side taillight as well when watching the video.   :E:

Finally had a chance to get into my buddy's shop and replace my old vent solenoid...
(pretty quick and painless... about 30 minutes)

The worst part about it being bad, was having the check engine light on and not being able to use the remote start!

I'll be so happy in the morning when it's 20 below and I can start it from my bedroom!!!   :woohoo:

First day it's been above freezing in a while so I swapped out the broken bearing on my cargo slide. Enjoyed the high 30s while it lasted, back in the low teens for the next few days.

Today I re wired my train horn so that I have a kill switch on the compressor so it wont run when the tank looses pressure but the truck is off. Now I can just kill the entire system
